For starters I loooovoe Pocky and Pretz sticks. All sorts of japanese food: sushi, sukiyaki, and ramen :) and expecially tea. But my real obsession is Hello Kitty and all the wierd Hello Kitty stuff they sell in Japan. I like anime, too. My granda got my a beautiful kimono in Japan. I hope to go someday myself, I'm a bit of a Japanophile. :3

I love all things Japanese except squat toilets.

To name a few: momiji, sakura, kinokonyama chocolates, hoji cha, nabe, onsens, etc etc.

If, by chance, I win, can you send the gift to my mom (who loves green tea and would love your draw string bag)...I can't receive any food stuffs in Qatar.

Anna M. said...

I'm currently taking a Japanese class and it's making me appreciate the Japanese a lot more than I did before.

I love the way they have an organized lifestyle, their beautiful kimonos, their food, their candy is sweet and unique, their bonsai trees, etc.

And of course, Hello Kitty & Anime. =]

I would love to win this to share with my Japanese class. =]
Thanks for the giveaway!
