There are so many things that are cute, cool and beautiful in Japan.
My friend had brought rice crackers (shrip crackers to be exact) confectionary the other day to the studio.
On the package it said "catching goldfish". Inside, there were shrimp crackers shaped in goldfishes and circular crackers as bubbles in water and a spoon like cracker that acts as a net to catch the fish.
There is a tradition in the summer time where there are carnival like festivals and one of the common games is trying to catch goldfish with a net that is made out of tissue paper to make it challenging to catch with.
The crackers were such a playful idea and yet very seasonal. These are the things I love to find out about Japan, so fun!
