  • If you are wondering what Japan is particularly good at, matcha desserts is definitely one of them. However, you don’t have to go to a shop that specialises in matcha sweets to get your fill. Matcha desserts can be easily obtained from the convenience store and once you start, it is hard to stop. 


    Today, Instagrammer Yukko is going to introduce you to three delicious matcha desserts that you can get from Seven Eleven.

    Dorayaki Pancakes Filled With Matcha Cream ¥278 (before tax)

    Seven Eleven is always selling some kind of delicious matcha cream-filled dorayaki. This time, the name has been changed slightly. This dorayaki is just ¥3 more expensive than last time, however it looks just as good as it always has. You just will not be able to resist buying it. 

    As you take your first bite of this high-quality snack, the scent of the matcha will reach you first, followed by the flavour of the matcha which spreads instantly through your mouth. The matcha is rich yet so light that it will instantly melt on your tongue. The pancakes sandwiching the large creamy matcha filling are both fluffy and thick. Cut it in half and you will not be able to resist. 

    This is a wonderful snack to sink your teeth into while you walk. If you want to keep your hands clean, you could even use a spoon to scoop out the filling. Enjoy it in your own unique way as it is tasty no matter how you choose to enjoy it!

    Matcha and Matcha Parfait ¥278

    As the name implies, this matcha parfait is the perfect opportunity to taste a variety of matcha flavours in one single tub. From the bottom, the cup is filled with matcha jelly, followed by matcha mousse, milk mousse and matcha whipped cream. Within the layers of matcha whipped cream you will discover a goldmine of matcha jelly and a dorayaki pancake core. 

    The matcha flavour of the jelly is quite weak, however its wobbly and springy texture contributes to the deliciousness of the parfait. The moderately sweet whipped cream combined with the matcha flavour is perfectly balanced. The milk mousse has a rich, milky flavour. It may be sweet, however the matcha mousse underneath it is slightly bitter, so enjoy them together for a delicious overall flavour. 


    The fluffy matcha mousse and rich matcha is unbelievably delicious. The dorayaki centre is soft, fluffy and thick which accents the flavour. Overall, the parfait is not overpoweringly sweet and the matcha flavour is gentle on your tongue.  

    Uji Matcha Cream Mochi: ¥110 (before tax )

    Uji Matcha Cream Mochi is a soft, thin and chewy dough that is rolled out thin and then wrapped around a large spoon of uji matcha cream. This is always a popular pick. Last time, they served the uji matcha chocolate mochi. I wonder how the Uji Matcha Cream Mochi will taste!

    This time, the mochi has a slightly more springy texture. The outside is chewy, yet the inside is gooey. This mochi cake is bursting with matcha so you can really enjoy the matcha flavour. The bitter matcha flavour is perfectly balanced with a touch of sweetness. This dessert even come with a fork so that you don’t have to get your hands dirty. 

    I know, it is hard to choose which matcha dessert to try. Convenience stores are always refreshing the varieties of goods they sell, so if you are particularly attracted to any of the desserts mentioned above, it is probably best to try them before they are replaced.


    Mogu Mogu Yukko introduces lots of desserts and sweets that are easily found in convenience stores and supermarkets on her Instagram so please check out her other posts:

    A competition is scheduled to be held on September 22 for the board game ‘The Game of Life.’ The convention will take place as part of a celebration of 50 years since the game first came out in Japan back on September 16, 1968. This is the first time the event will take place which seeks to find the best players in Japan.

    People up and down the country are being recruited through lottery systems and judging. One person out of 128 will be crowned Japan’s number one player. Anybody can join regardless of their age or sex, meaning anybody can take the title.

    The winner will be rewarded a 3-night stay in Las Vegas as well as a set of paper money for the game with their own face on it.


    The convention will be the main event of the 1st Game of Life Festa. There’ll be an exhibition of all the different variations of the game as well as a replica of the original. You can look forward to enjoying The Game of Life in a number of different ways.

    Anybody can attend the convention whether they’re battling or not, and anybody is free to play, kids and adults alike.
