The layover in Japan has been so enjoyable !!
This is not my first time here in Japan and to be exact, not my first time here in Osaka. I have been here 2 years ago and I totally loved it. I don't remember much how cute, unique, rushy and polite their culture is until today. Since I chose to go for a lower price ticket, the layover's involved.
Wait, layover doesn't have to be so bad every time.
I don't like the layover in Oman, not at all. The Singapore one was alright. The Incheon airport was super duper! A lot more but let's just move on! Now here, in Osaka, Japan..
Not so sure if I would like to tell you the exact number how many I have been waiting. I don't really want to give you a heart attack haaa lol
Japanese Cute & Weird confections
Since I got quite a few (many) hours. I have been walking around the wait area which has a lot of shops and a few cafes and restaurants. Clothes, bags, perfumes, cosmetics, liquors, cigarettes, you name it. I passed all on those and went straight to the Japanese style cute confectionery.
Guedetama, the lazy egg.
Let's start with this little yellow lazy egg. My favourite character of all time. I wanna meet the creator of this one and treat him a boba tea or something. So cute, so lazy and now it's stamped on cookies!
Doraemon and the magic door
Not sure about other countries in the world but in Thailand and surely many other countries in Asia know this chubby kitty so well, 'Doraemon'! The magic cat from the future that came with the magic door. The door could take you anywhere you imagine! That's why we so love him!
You know KitKats. Everyone does. I have been seeing this brands since I was a kid but just that bland red one forever. Japan changes the whole games with all the grape, peach, green tea, melon, strawberry and the lists go on. To be honest with you here though, I think the original one is my fav and always will be :D
Other fruity desserts that look cute
I haven't tried all of them but I have been looking and it's been enjoyable looking at them. Dang! I should have taken more photos. Well, at least you have an idea.
Once in Japan, you just couldn't ignore this brand if you love chocolate. I have been eating this for many years because every time my family members travel to Japan, they bring back at least a few boxes of these fresh Nama chocolate. 'Wait, what chocolate?'
Super duper smooth (as silk) yum! <3
A fine, delicate pairing of select chocolate, fresh cream with a hint of prestigious liquors, Nama Chocolate is a velvety smooth 'fresh' ganache chocolate, containing at least double the amount of cream usually found in conventional chocolates. With fresh cream and liquor accounting for almost a quarter of combined ingredients, the extremely high moisture content level gives Nama Chocolate its distinctively silky palate and smooth texture, allowing it to melt slowly on your tongue. - Royce -
I bought a box this time since it can't survive without being in a fridge for more than 3-4 hours (because of the fresh cream contained).
Weird seafood snacks
I mean, I'm from Thailand and we have so many types of seafood snacks that foreigners would be like.. 'Whattt?'. Now here in Japan, they have something that make me exclaim the same thing.
Let's start with this baked scallop ready to eat.. I don't think I have seen this before.
Now this small pinky tube that I first thought, 'Why do they sell this refrigerated cosmetics in a food store?'. Then after walking a bit closer.. Oh! It's shrimp roes paste in a tube ready to put on rice and eat! This is pretty shocking. I so wanted to get this but again, refrigeration needed.
Oh my, it's boarding time!!!!!! See you in a Japan airline review vlog or USA Steemit meet-up blog post. One or the other or not at all. Bye now! <3
