More Japan



Here's more of my bounty from the Asian super market. It's crazy to drive more than an hour for these things, but it's fun. And reminds me of a place I love. And as a bonus advantage. It gives me a glimpse into being a minority. Nothing like being in a place with hundreds of people and your the only white one. Yes, we get more than our share of second looks.
The little boy & girl plastic containers are big, bigger than a gallon jug. Their little hats screw off, and when your done you can use them as a bank, they have a slot cut in the top of the hat. They have different flavors of "jelly" in them shaped like stars. Japanese people love "jellies". It's not jelly as we know it. I can't even explain what it's like. But kids love it.
