What I Purchased at Tokyo Haneda Airport - New Year's Japan Travel Day 7

Tokyo Haneda Airport

            My husband and I traveled Japan during New Year's holidays. After we stayed in Tokyo for five nights, we went to Haneda Airport Domestic Terminal to fly to Fukuoka, where is our home town.  Today, I'm going to share four products I purchased at Haneda Airport with you.

1. Shiseido Parlour La Ganache (資生堂パーラー  ラ・ガナッシュ)
17 pieces
1188 yen

        As I mentioned in my previous entry, 6 Popular Products form Shiseido Parlour Shop - Shiseido Parlour Ginza Tokyo (Shiseido Restaurants, Cafe and Confectionery Store), Shiseido is not only a Japanese cosmetic company, but they also have restaurants, cafe and confectionery stores in Japan. In 1902, Shiseido first started selling soda fountain and ice cream in Ginza, Tokyo. In 1928, they also started restaurant business, Shiseido Parlour (資生堂パーラー).

      At Haneda Airport, Shiseido Parlour was selling their popular cheese cake, cookies and chocolate. I finally purchased Shiseido Parlour La Ganache there. :)

     The packaging was so cute! ;) I think that Shiseido Parlour's confectionery is a perfect delicious souvenir from Tokyo for female friends. Indeed, I enjoyed these with my Korean friend, and she didn't know that Shiseido is making these chocolate candies in Japan. ;)

      It had two kinds of chocolate candies, dark chocolate and white chocolate.  They were less sweet, and I really loved them. ;)

2. Edo Matsuri Ningyo Yaki (江戸祭り 人形焼)
10 pieces
702 yen
Edo Matsuri Ningyo Yaki

        Ningyo yaki (人形焼) is a traditional small molded Japanese cake originated from Tokyo and is one of the most popular Tokyo's souvenirs. It has sweetened red bean pastes in it. In Tokyo, you can find ningyo yaki at most gift shops in sightseeing spots or at train stations and airports.

       Because I love ningyo yaki so much, when we have a chance to visit Tokyo, we always purchase one. ;) Actually, he also purchased Edo Matsuri Ningyo Yaki at Haneda Airport before.

        The package has the picture of Tokyo Edo Festival. You can see people carrying a Japanese traditional mikoshi in this picture.

          Each ningyo yaki has different shape such as mikoshi (神輿), lanterns (提灯) and men carrying mikoshi.
      Mikoshi (神輿) is a portable Shinto shrine, which you can see during Japanese festival, matsuri (祭り). Edo (江戸) is former name of Tokyo.

Kanda Matsuri
        Kanda Matsuri (神田祭), Kanda Festival, is one of the three great Shinto festivals in Tokyo.

Sanja Matsuri
      Sanja Matsuri (三社祭), Sanja Festival, is a Shinto festival of Asakusa Shrine.

      You can eat them without cooking, but I toasted ningyo yaki with my Sharp Healsio Gurie, a Japanese highend toaster oven.

       They turned out so delicious as if they were just freshly baked. If you love sweetened red bean paste, anko (あんこ), I think that you will like them.

3. Tokyo Banana (東京ばな奈 「見ぃつけたっ」)
8 pieces
1029 yen
Tokyo Banana
        Tokyo Banana is also a very popular souvenir from Tokyo. It's fluffy sponge cake which has banana custard cream in it. I think everyone loves it regardless of race and age. We purchased Tokyo Banana for our family in Fukuoka. His three-year-old niece had one for her first time in her life and really loved it. ;)

4. Katsu Sand (カツサンド)
     Katsu Sand is a delicious Japanese sandwich, meat cutlet in between two slices of bread. In Japan, you can find katsu sand everywhere, but did you know that katsu sand originated in Tokyo in 1935?  We purchased some katsu sand for luch at Haneda Airport.
