It’s also stuffed with brown sugar red bean paste sprinkled with salt from Aogashima, brown sugar jelly, and chewy rice flour dumplings, creating a mix of complex and subtle flavours. A refreshing touch is added by the lychee, and everything’s topped off with a luxurious matcha macaron.

Taste tea from Uji on Japanese Tea Day
It is generally considered that the first tea of the season in Japan is best enjoyed from the end of April and during May, but in fact Japanese tea is the perfect season to enjoy Japanese tea, specially since the country celebrates Japanese Tea Day (Nihoncha no Hi) on October 1 and 31.
Ujicha, or tea from Uji in Kyoto, boasts some of the most famous kinds of teas in Japan. This includes matcha, sencha, and gyokuro, all of which were first grown in southern Kyoto.

Kaori’s Easy Recipe: Learn to Make Hello Kitty Strawberry Ice Cream
With just a small bit of ingenuity, turn everyday food into something cute using Kaori’s Easy Recipe! With a few simple ideas, an ordinary recipe magically transforms into a cute dish.
Today’s recipe will show you how to make a simple ice cream made with frozen strawberries and a blender.
500g frozen strawberries (either store bought or self-frozen)

Place the blended mix into a ziplock bag and place into the freezer. After about an hour, massage the mix while it’s still inside the bag. Repeat this whole process 2-3 times. Doing this will make the ice cream tastier.
Once fully set, place into a serving cup of your choice, use sliced white chocolate to make your chocolate Hello Kitty, and serve!
