Hi there! Today's post shares some images from a recent visit to San Jose's Mitsuwa shopping center, complete with a Daiso and well-stocked Mitsuwa grocery. First, the exquisite spring-celebratory peach wagashi from Minamoto Kitchoan:
Green tea in essence of spring packaging
At Daiso, these cat key chains were both weird and cute
A bright explosion of fake flowers, also at Daiso
Back to bento: the chirashizushi contains lightly rice-vinegared rice topped with ikura, kamaboko, sliced omelet, spicy pink-stemmed radish sprouts, asparagus, mushrooms and daikon pickles cut in sakura shapes--a very light and refreshing lunch!
