Japan, how i missed the country already and i do wonder at times if i was born in the wrong country lol :-P
That is why i am always on the hunt for Japanese food/ snacks that are imported in by Malaysia based Japanese companies like Shojikiya, AEON, etc. But on my quest on doing so i came to realized the fact that the cost is going to be slightly higher (import fees duh!) than it was if you were to buy it in Japan.
And of course not everyone can afford to travel to the land of the rising sun, so the closest one can try out their food & snacks without feeling the pinch is none other than Okashi World (お菓子 世界)! The word Okashi (お菓子) basically means "Snack" in Japanese and an alternate reading for Okashi in Hiragana is おかし, so you get the name of the shop " Snack World".
This place also can be an alternative to get friends and family members some Japanese snack souvenirs especially if you have hit your baggage space/ weight limit in Japan lol, same thing anyways just that it's been shipped here
Check out my recent loots, always feel like i raided Okashi World whenever i am there *diefatme* i am so one step closer into becoming a whale liao, need to workout more in the gym so i can snack more lol. Ladies and gentlemen, please don't be like Arisa, excising for the wrong reason XD
To be frank, think i know their shop almost inside out and what kind of brands they carry in and which aisle they are arranged at lel, one of the newest snacks Okashi world has is the funky flavored kitkats (previously mentioned in my Chiba post) which is a big YAY!
Aside from snacks, they do carry in some ingredients for cooking like curry, noodles, konbu, soup base, Furikake, and sorts. So if you are feeling adventurous to try making Japanese food, you can stock up your ingredients from Okashi world and at the same time get a snack or two for the kids.
The membership fee is a flat rate of RM15 (annual renewal) but what you get from it is definitely worth so much more, all these exclusive benefits which can be found in the poster below.
Trust me, previews are always the best because that's when we get first dibs on the new stuff or sales :D
That's not all, the good news doesn't end here as Okashi World will be organizing their very own Japanese Food fair at these two locations for the month of March and April, if you are in the area do drop by, I’ll definitely be visiting the one in Intermark if i am in KL that week.
