St. Patrick's Day in Japan

During almost 20 years of my life in Japan, I never heard of St. Patrick's Day. I don't remember it being reported on TV or in the newspaper when I lived there.

It just occurred to me whether there was any celebration in Japan. Yes, there was in Tokyo! Perhaps I never knew this Irish holiday because I lived in a mid-size city?


By the way, we started twittering ->
It allows us to give you a quick, casual update and we will do our best to be active!

Who's the girl on Milky Candy?

Peko-chan is a 6 year-old super famous mascot of Fujiya confectionery.

One of our new snacks Fujiya Peko-chan Milky Candy is manufactured with rich condensed milk from Hokkaido in Japan. This small box contains 7 flavorful individually wrapped candies.
The milk-flavored caramel candy is a delicious treat for everybody.

Peko-chan is so adorable that some people even steal Peko-chan, risking jail time!

We've also added Kikori No Kiri Kabu chocolate snack and "momi nori" shredded seaweed. Shredded seaweed is commonly used on tofu and soba.
