Japan ‘gifting people food’ after vacations could help you already. Its kind of genius, actually, because then you don’t have to worry about whether your best friend goes to hate the gaudy Hawaiian shirt you bought, and instead you can delight them with the universal gift of food.
Best part is that even within Japan, every region has its ownomiyage or souvenirs, and that even includes the urban town of Tokyo. Tokyo has so many specialty omiyage snacks that its hard to pick which one to take home. Weve got a list of six of our favorite omiyage snacks, but not all all from Tokyo, and so our Japanese-language journalist K. Masami recommends the Tokyo Miyage Fuku Fuku Set, or Lucky Lucky Set of Tokyo Food Gifts.
Lucky bag (or box) only available at the end of the year, which costs 9,980 yen (US$75.05), but perfect for keeping busy with shopping for good things at the end of the year (or for getting expensive snackers). We have only one, no two, and eleven different snacks local to Tokyo!

Hanagataya Fuku Maneki Cafe Set
The lucky bag gives a novelty pour-over coffee pack to serve up your hoard of sweets.
Chaque item actually comes with the paper bag you would get if you actually bought it from its shop. Unathese, polite way to give someone a souvenir is to hand it over while still in the bag from the shop it went, so this is ideal. (Of course if you plan on eating them all yourself, it will be great to use them for hopping or something.)
Ayurved & Eats Easily Kill This Box of Delectable Snacks: It’s sold exclusively online by JR East Cross Station Retail Company, The Tokyo Miyage Kiosk Mall HANGATAYA Rakuten Market Shop, NewDays JRE Mall Shop.
The Tokyo Miyage Fuku Fuku Set sold out immediately upon release, following in the footsteps of last years lucky bag of Tokyo souvenirs, but the fact that its scheduled to go back on sale on January 1 at midnight (Japan standard time) yet theres still a chance to purchase it.
Youll need to wait for New Years Eve before you head off to the first shrine visit of the year that night. But I do believe that you cannot make an arrest in the morning for the holidays. But with so many snacks packed into this box, this not a bargain to play onespecially if you dont live in Tokyo area!
