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!
