5 Coolest Affordable Tokyo-Style Souvenirs

I think we all agree that Japan is one of the best countries in Asia. No matter what you’re looking for, Japan never disappoints. All the places to shop, the sightseeing, the unforgettable food. (OK! This sounds a bit dramatic. But seriously, who doesn’t like Japan?) Here are the coolest Tokyo-style souvenirs to take home from your next trip.

1. My Captain Cheese Set

Launched in 2019 April, the Captain Cheese Set has become a trending item in Tokyo(東京自由行). If we have similar tastes in burgers (cheeseburger is my all-time favourite!), then you must put this cheese set on your bucket list. It’s a box filled with cheesecakes, biscuits and a perfect combination of cheese and cheese-biscuit-wrapped chocolate.

2. Roasted Marshmallow S’More

You can tell what kind of snack item it is just by seeing its name. No matter their age, people love roasted marshmallows when it comes to campfire events. Unlike the traditional Western style, this is an advanced version. In other words, it’s more like a roasted marshmallow chocolate tart. I would say it is perhaps the best souvenir for your besties, family members and loved ones.

5. Rice-stuffed squid with tare sauce(元祖森名物・いかめし)

These fresh squid are filled with glutinous rice in a secret sweet-and-sour tare sauce. First introduced in 1941 at Mori Station (森駅), it has became one of the most well-known bento meals (駅弁) in Japan. You might find it weird to take home, but give it a shot. You won’t regret it.
