From Tokyo With Love

When visiting Tokyo, the famous places you read about all the time are definitely a must visit, but make sure to take a stroll away from the main path and venture into the lesser known parts of the city. The same goes for the snacks. The popular ones are great, but the real gems are from the stores that only locals know about. This box features a variety of different snacks from small boutique shops in Tokyo!

Tokyo Banana (東京ばな奈)

limited edition snakku tokyo banana

These snacks are only found in Tokyo and are one of the most popular snacks in the city! This banana shaped fluffy sponge cake is made with real bananas and has been a hit ever since it was introduced in 1991. Even I (Shigeki - Snakku founder) don’t particularly like banana flavored snacks, really enjoy these! The Tokyo Banana in this month’s box is filled with banana maple custard. You can read more about it here where we take a closer look at the snack.

Tokyo Banana Pie (東京ばな奈パイ)

A very delicate biscuit made by Tokyo Banana. Like all of their snacks from this store, this is also made with bananas. There’s a light smooth finish to the cookies, which is achieved by using quality bananas and slowly baking the cookies.

Mame Yakko (豆やっこ)

tokyo snacks

Made by a small shop in the lavish Ginza neighborhood, this unique cracker is made from a mixture of edamame beans and rice. They douse the cracker in a secret broth before baking it, giving it a crisp clean savory finish. Flavors include edamame, spicy dashi broth, and traditional roasted kinako soybean flour.

Kinesha (衣しゃ)

These seasonal folded butter biscuits are from a lesser known but up-and-coming snack store in Ginza. The three flavors (plain, maple, and chocolate) are made to represent the foliage from autumn in Japan.

What Our Customers Said

"OMG I love this month's box! Can I order another one?"

"I'm very impressed with the quality and professionalism of Snakku. It's not your typical Japanese snack box as it has such a classy feel to it."
"I was surprised by how many snacks there were—other subscription boxes I've gotten had only half as much. This snack experience is unique, authentic, and most importantly, delicious. Highly recommended."
"There are a lot of Japanese snack subscriptions out there, but nothing comes close to Snakku. You can tell each item is carefully chosen, and the box is packaged with care. I don't think I'll ever stop getting Snakku. It's just too special."
