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. 


The Research arm of J Cast,  J-Town published the research result: 10 best souvenirs Japanese would love to receive in 2015. For your trip to Japan, you can take the list into consideration. With a new regulation on the tax free rule in Japan, you may enjoy some tax favour on your purchase during your trip in Japan (updated on 2nd of May, 2016).
