This month Luna-chan celebrated the start of summer with a holiday in Ishigaki, one of the 160 Okinawan islands.
We taste-tested some of the most unusual summer food trends. Have you tried any of these?
Let's find out what was inside our July Packs!
This month we’re showcasing Japan’s ramen classics, from traditional to new flavors. Try six different ramen varieties, as well as one all-time popular yakisoba. If you’re a hopeless ramen-tic, you’ll also enjoy learning a bit more about the history of this famous dish. You’ll even get to try the first-ever instant noodles that people were able to prepare at home...in 1958!
ZenPop is located in Osaka - Japan’s second largest city - and we love it! We get to try the best ramenyas, izakayas in interesting neighbourhoods and all the street foods of bustling Dōtonbori. Osaka is all about convenience - there is a konbini (convenience store) on every corner where you can get new and unique Japanese snacks. Sample the flavors of Osaka for yourself with July’s City Snacks Ramen + Mix Pack. What’s your favorite?
Like most places in the world, summer time in Japan is barbecue time! As houses are usually quite small and don’t have an outdoor area, we BBQ in the park or by the river. Our Summer BBQ Pack includes lots of meaty savory snacks for sharing, as well as Country Ma’am cookies and even ice cream. Fire up the grill and enjoy these tasty snacks with your friends!
So much cute Japanese stationery and so little time... but we have an idea, why not update your collection every season! It’s summer, so July’s pack is full of bright and colorful items that will have you dreaming of your tropical summer holiday. We’ve included Japan’s most popular items, like a Sarasa pen, Mildliners and mt Washi Tape, as well as 7 more sparkly, summery and happy items.
