Try Some Candies Full of Amaou Strawberries
Amaou is a variety of Japanese strawberries grown in Fukuoka and are characterized by their rich sweetness and fresh aftertaste. The Tokyo souvenir called the “Amaou Pouch” (2,268 yen/incl. tax) is an assortment of three types of candies made with generous portions of amaou: The first type is the "Ita-ame-hanehitoe” which melts on the tongue but has a crispy texture when bitten. Next is what’s called the "Sweet Lip," candy with a honey-like texture, and the "Bo-ame-niji-no-mukou,” which is a candy which packs a gentle sweet flavor that is said to remind Japanese people of their childhoods. They are only sold at Ginza Mitsukoshi, a department store in one of Japan's most luxurious shopping areas, Ginza.
