Each order comes with a box of 18 Aomori Ringo Cookies.
This snack is from the northern prefectures of Japan, Aomori (青森). Aomori literally translates to ‘blue forest’ because of its unique geography where the mountainous, forest covered prefecture is surround by the blue sea on three sides. The area is considered one of the most beautiful regions of Japan due to its extremely clean waters, untouched forests, snow-covered mountains, plentiful hot springs, and bountiful seas. Aomori is not only beautiful, but is also seeped in ancient history; one of the earliest native settlements of Japan (dating back to 6000 BC) is found here.
Osamu Dazai was a famous Japanese author from Aomori. A number of his most popular works, such as “The Setting Sun” and “No Longer Human” are considered classics in Japan. These apple cookies were his favorite!
We included these in the June’17 “Apples & Mythical Monsters” Snakku box.
