It’s spring! In western countries, Easter and Passover were just celebrated. However, Japan has few Christian and Jewish people so those festivals are not celebrated as much in Japan. Japanese people have their own holidays.
Easter is starting to creep in….a bit. I shot these photos in Tokyo, but these sorts of chocolates are still extremely rare in Japan. (And expensive! Each one is approximately fifteen American dollars.)
This is more my budget! But still gourmet.
With these chocolates, you can open the window and read the Japanese.
It says: Usagi wa haru no shisya.
Can you figure out what it says? (scroll down for answer.)
The Japanese says: The rabbit is spring’s messenger.
