Background

In Japan there is a custom of gift-giving, where anybody who has gone on holiday brings back a local souvenir. Stylishly wrapped boxes of cakes or biscuits such as these are brought back to families or workplaces so the traveller's relatives and colleagues can enjoy a small piece of the holiday for themselves. Take a look in Japan Centre's Confectionery section for a great range of Japanese souvenir-style sweets.
