'Whenever I go to a foreign country, one of my favourite things to do is visit a local supermarket. One key reason is of course because food is my one true love, but other than that, supermarkets give you the chance to experience the everyday life of people in the country. You can learn so much about a country from their cuisine, and it would be a travesty to visit a place and not experience as many delicacies as possible.
I've been lucky enough to live in Japan for the past 5 years, and during that time I can safely say that I have become an expert in the field of Japanese snacks! I wish I could wave my magic wand and let you experience Japan in the flesh as I have, but alas, the best I can do is let you know how you can get your hands on some of the tastiest treats this country has to offer. Let your taste buds do the travelling!'
If you're wondering where to buy Japanese snacks in the UK, look no further! Kagoshima resident couple @minakagocouple's Jo has once again curated a list for us and made it all easy to buy from sites like Amazon. From snacks that you may have had before, to the complete unknown, welcome to the world of Japanese snacks. Itadakimasu!
Japan is a country with so many amazing products, it is truly a challenge to condense the highlights into a list of just 10. I have listed my personal favourites, but there are so many more to try, so I implore you to get out there and start tasting!
