October Bokksu: Autumn Appetite 食欲の秋

Celebrating seasonality is a core aspect of Japanese culture. And no season in Japan is more highly anticipated than autumn! This excitement for autumn is perfectly encapsulated by the adage, “shokuyoku no aki” (食欲の秋), which means “autumn is the season for eating”. This adage stems from the old belief that one’s appetite increases in autumn because of the abundance of many foods at the peak of their freshness. This month, to help you celebrate this hearty season in Japan, we’ve curated snacks and foods that Japanese people traditionally eat during autumn. This month's bokksu includes:

  • Golden Sweet Potato Cake こがね芋 by Nakajima Taishodo 中島大祥堂
  • Honey Glazed Apple Pie 蜜づけりんごパイ by Nakajima Taishodo 中島大祥堂
  • 20th Century Pear Langue De Chat 二十世紀梨ラングドシャ by Okashi No Kotobuki Jou おかしの壽城
  • Hazelnut Cafe Rusk ヘーゼルナッツカフェラスク by Tokyo Rusk 東京ラスク
  • Persimmon Monaka 柿もなか by Ishii Bussan 石井物産
  • Apple Green Tea アップルグリーンティー by Yamamotoyama 山本山
