We can’t leave out from the Japan series the amount of (crazy) snacks we were able to enjoy during our honeymoon.
I am a snack guy, no doubt, I could eat only of them (not healthy, I know, I do not really do it), so for me being able to try new things every day was a treat.
At the same time we also became so obsessed with their carefully thought packaging. They always have instructions to open it, no matter how easy it looks like, there is always the best way to do it. In addition the drawings and decorations were the most helpful to know what we should expect (crazy hot, veggies, whatever).
To take that obsession a step further (maybe too further?) we decided that we had to methodically take a picture of each new snack we tried. As a result of this, we came home with more than 100 pictures only of snacks. And they were only the ones that were different, and we repeated a lot, so I do not want to make the maths for our craziness; I won’t :)
We have selected the pictures of our favorites and then we have made a little silly video with almost all of them for you to follow us in our snacks’ mania. Hope you like it!

Salty pocky. There are all the flavors you can imagine of pocky (commercialized here as Mikado), but our favorite hands down were the salty!
Dragon ball in a can! :) Although Dragon Ball is not fashionable right now, there are still some vending machines offering this drink. We got one in Takayama and Ainokura (crazy, right?) and this one here from Kanazawa train station featuring Emperor Pilaf.
The drink is like an orange soda (Maybe after Goku’s orange suit?). Damaris also got her Dragon Ball drink :) She got Yarijobe.
Oh! yes we forgot to mention, when you buy the drink the machine gives you randomly one from all the designs shown on the back. Of course I wanted Goku ;) (and Damaris Bulma)
Chocolate cookies with panda faces, so kawaii right? :)
“For relaxing times, make it Suntory time.” ;)
My favorite snack (and a precious recommendation from Anna+Albert): chips with giant cheese chunks and pizza flavor. We even took 4 bags of them to Barcelona. The brand that commercializes those chips is Calbee, which, by the way, have a take away place in Takeshita-dori to buy some rare varieties as well.
Coffee addict as well. Lucky me, I was able to buy hot coffee from any of the vending machines.
