I suppose the best sweets for souvenir is Shiroi koibito (White Lover)!

This is the most popular souvenir from Hokkaido which has been popular for over 30 years since its birth. It’s a Langue-de-chat-type sweet, whose cookies are baked to golden perfection and sandwiching white chocolate. The crunchiness which is a key to this cookie is produced under strict quality control in the factory performing thorough hygienic management.

Please dip this Shiroi koibito in cold milk! It's yummy!

If you on a budget or even if you are not, the 100 yen shop is where you sshould be heading. You can get a range of great Japanese stuff which can double up as sovenirs. From Travel goods to stickers, from slippers to toys the 100 yen has it all. Main store is Daiso there are stores in virtually every city. The flagship store being in Takeshita Dori in Harajuku.

If you have a bit of cash to spend then a scaled down replica of a kimono and samurai sword may just be the best souvenirs from Japan for yourself or a loved one.

Here is a video of the range of souvenirs on offer at Tokyo Narita International Airport. If you are in a panic about what to buy your niece or nephew as a souvenir, dont worry as every Japanese souvenir you have dreamed of is available just before your flight at Narita.

Another insight into the world of Japanese Souvenirs.
This time a range of KitKats Snowborednow picked up from his travels around the land of the omiyage obsessed.
Featured in this video are green tea kitkats, apple-flavored kitkats and probably most bizarre is the soy sauce kitkats.

A UK woman has rocked into the Guiness Book of Records for having the largest collection of Pokemon merchandise with a total of over 13,000 items including stuffed toys and cards. Lisa Courtney started the collection 13 years years ago when Pokemon took off in the UK. She has been to Japan on a Pokemon-related trip.

Here's a CNN report on the most wackiest and best presents that people are buying in Japan. Presents include a breast pillow, a samurai umbrella, a dog bank for $50, a home fireworks projector and a speaking clock. Perfect for that difficult to buy present. See the best present in Japan video here

Here is a report on how the ubiquitous plastic food you can see outside restaurants all over is made.Can be bought in Kappabashi dori street. Get there from Tawaramachi station on the Ginza line. You can also buy kitchen tools, cutlery and an array of plates, dishes, cups and bowls many of which have traditional Japanese designs and have reasonable price tags

Best Japanese souvenirs from the supermarkets are:
1) Nori seaweed. Sheets of dried seaweed. Delicious on salad and sushi. Healthy too!
2) Natto. Smelly fermented beans. It's refrigerated so may be even smellier by th time you get home so buy the day before.
3) miso soup. Good as an apetizer.
4) sake is great if you like alcohol.
Good luck and itadakemasu!!
