Chidoriyais a well known snack store in Japan. Established in 1630, they began selling snacks when the Portuguese brought western baked cakes to Japan.
This particular store is in Fukuoka, Japan (where my grandparents are from). Everything is well packaged and meticulously laid out. When you walk in, they even offer you free tea and a taste of some of their delicious treats.
They sell dozens of different types of snacks, but are most known for their "Tirolian" which are cream filled thin crepe cigars
They also sell assorted snack boxes which are perfect as gifts. The gift boxes are all nicely arranged and each snack is individually wrapped.
Take a look at some of their other scrumptious treats here!

When most visit Japan, they may head first to the trendy Harajuku district of Tokyo or perhaps take a pilgrimage to the famous active volcano, Mount Fuji. But if you want to go off the beaten path, head north to the enchanting, rural island of Hokkaido.
Tokyo has long been a booming city, so it makes a natural fit for the 2020 Summer Olympics. Of course, this popular event is sure to mean one thing: a lot of people! But don't worry, here are the best places to go off the beaten path in Tokyo.
