Japanese Sweet of “Top 5 Tokyo souvenir”

Representative Japanese Sweets of  Tokyo 

In 2014, “Let’s Enjoy Tokyo” did a questionnaire about the souvenir confections for 1,557 men and women living all over Japan. They announced “Top 5 Tokyo souvenirs which everybody wants to get.”
“Standard Tokyo souvenirs” and “the products ranked in 2013” are excluded.

Limited sweets of Haneda Airport.
It is a cake with impact in appearance; the whole apple cooked in sugar syrup is wrapped in Baumkuchen.

It is the taste of a long-standing shop established in the Edo era.
These Japanese style sweet get much support from people in their forties and fifties particularly.

Flavor of banana that melts softly in your mouth is the distinct characteristic of this bread.

Raisins and special cream are sandwiched by two cookies. The confections of No.4 and No.5 seem to have two reasons why they were chosen “Top 5 Tokyo souvenirs.” Both of them are value-added confections; not only delicious taste but also “Tokyo limited edition” & “long standing shops.”

One of the requirements to be popular sweets is “limited edition”! Oh, that is another new requirement !
Because there are too many Japanese sweets in Japan, we might get tired of the ordinary ones we can get easily.
