japanese sweets is the first in a series of posts on japanese food. i will apologize for the quality of the pictures. most of them are taken in a hurry, regardless of the light. but i hope you will appreciate the documentary element of the post rather than the artistic impression. thank you for the concession!
that being said, i will start by giving you an idea about the prices. 1,000 yen means 7.5 euro or 10.2 usd.
here you have the breakfast for four from the unbelievably il vento in on teshima island.
this is vanilla ice cream on the way to arashiyama bamboo forest, near kyoto. i still remember the cinnamon in the biscuit!
the following pictures are taken from a cake shop in hiroshima station. it’s called wagamama and i love their totoro cakes!
these are from an exquisite cake shop in roppongi midtown, in tokyo. wow!
this is a frozen yoghurt place in shibuya, tokyo. it’s called partyland.
a brownie w/ icecream and a tiramisu in respekt, in shibuya. very cool place!
here you have a lot of pictures from various places i don’t really remember right now.
this is an ice cream place in kamakura. i had the cassis sorbet and the boys had mango. yum!
a few more cakes i actually had, as you can see.
this is pino, a great japanese dessert. i kept the blue tool as a reminder of that night in ueno…
last, but not least, is my birthday cake on my last day in tokyo. good times!
what is your favourite sugar fix?
