Best 10 Sweets Souvenirs in Japan 2015 (based on Japanese people’s opinion)
Do you know Japan has a gift culture? It means that when you go on travel to somewhere, you usually bring some local gifts to your family, friends and even to colleagues at office (if you work in Japan, after some holiday seasons, you suddenly see some box of sweets next to the coffee machine in the office or so.).
Young people do not follow this tradition much any more but if you want to be traditional in Japan, you can buy some.
