The senbei are available all year but I was amazed at the seasonal confectioneries that are changed frequently. Out of them, I liked the one that is shaped as Mount Fuji. I want to give them as gifts to my friends abroad. I was very pleased at the warm service that the staff of Suetomi gave and had a great experience shopping there.

Because there are no product signs in English, you may be refrained a little bit from making your choice. However, I am sure you can choose the one you like from looking at the wonderful products in the display. The fresh Japanese confectioneries have light sweet taste that is very enjoyable with tea.
