Kitsune’s Tail きつねのしっぽ
by Akai Ribon 赤いリボン
Kitsune are commonly divided into two types: Zenko (good foxes) and Yako (wild foxes). Zenko are servants of Inari (Shinto god of rice) and help guard shrines and humans against the evil and mischievous Yako. Kitsune have superior intellect and gain the power to shapeshift after living for 100 years, so they often play the roles of tricksters and seducers in folklore. Kitsune’s Tail is a flaky pie that is topped with maple white chocolate and baked into the shape of an adorable fox cub’s tail.

Organic Sencha Tea オーガニック煎茶
By Yamamotoyama 山本山
Sencha is the traditional steamed green tea of Japan. Steaming (instead of pan-firing like in Chinese teas) prevents oxidization of the leaves and preserves the tea’s fresh taste and vivid green color. This organic sencha tea has a grassy or pine-like flavor that is refreshing and invigorating.
