tohoku365 DAY17 ~AKITA INU NO FUN~



Wandering alongside Tazawa Lake, the deepest freshwater lake in Japan, I ended up in a souvenir shop as the location is ideal for some traditional “omiyage” (souvenirs). Strolling amongst the sweets, a cute little box with an Akita dog on caught my eye.

It wasn’t until I’d bought the chocolate biscuits that I realised it was a joke, (I won’t describe what this joke was, but hopefully you can guess it from looking at the photo).

Bravely, I bit into the cookie and, to my relief, found it to contain delicious milk chocolate. I managed to finish
off the whole box whilst sat next to the statue of Tatusuko, Tazawa Lake’s legendary character.
