Do you like to visit local supermarkets when you are traveling abroad?
It is me! I am lover of local supermarkets (because of my sweet teeth).
Today I went to San-A, and took some photos of what captured my heart.
I am beginner of living in Okinawa (please read me).
So, I feel confident that I will find some interesting, vivid, and lovely things in Okinawa.
(The vivid things for travelers are not always shining by view of local people.)
Those things will be perfect for souvenir, anyway!
The why I am writing this series of a souvenir guide “M.S.C.” is written in here.
Please have a great times in your traveling in Japan especially Okinawa!
I really grad to help you make enjoyable trip plan.
Let’s get onto main subject!
San-A is a loved loved loved Okinawan shopping mall!
I went to San-A@Biimata-shopping center.(20170113)
In B1 floor, there is a famous Japanese 100-yen shop “Daiso”.
In 1st floor, they are selling home electric appliances and food stuff.
(Moreover, there is a drugstore”MatsumotoKiyoshi”)
this is the entrance
You can get sweets lei at 100-yen shops in this season (just about 200-300 yen).
Sweets lei are used for celebrating graduation in junior high schools and high schools.
I feel that ｇiving this cute leis is one of my favorite culture in Okinawa.
For Valentine’s day, they sell kinds of chocolates!
going up by the stair, you will find baking sweet potatoes!
It is the entrance of the supermarket.
Cheap Sweets and Snacks; you can get them for under 100 yen
Polished Japanese Chocolate
Do you like Japanese sweets, macha and adzuki-beans?
They have good taste, especially chocolates.
Sweets for souvenirs and of private brands (they are inexpensive).
My favorite Chinsuko is this!
Its flavor is the richest of all Chinsukos I have eaten.
Can you see the prices in this picture?
You can get all of them for 100 yen (+tax) each.
Winter and early spring are seasons of strawberry in Japan.

Rice drinks and ginger drinks keep your body hot.

Tsujili is a famous brand of macha.
Lovely instant cocoa!

An explanation of it is here.
Instant noodles are really good for souvenir!
You can taste of the trips at your home.
Desserts and delicatessens
低糖質 means low-carb.
There are Okinawan-delicatessens.
Desserts and delicatessens can’t keep for a long time.
But in case you have enough time to stay in Okinawa,
Please try them!
At the bakery corner, you will find not only breads.
In Japan, there are great cereals!
I recommend ごろっとグラノーラ , loving Macha Flavor.
Traditional sweets are also there.
Do you like to eat ice creams?
In winter, Okinawa is the best place to taste ice creams!
I feel that Okinawa is warmer than other regions in Japan in winter.
Tasting ice cream in nice and warm climate is the most gorgeous activity.
If you have question about travel to Okinawa, please ask me.
I really grad to help you make your great trip plans!
