A Visual Diary of my travels mostly in Japan, but also around the world including the small details we sometimes overlook

Ok, I know this has nothing to do with Nagoya, but I just had to put this up. I LOVE Tokyo Banana! They are known for their banana shaped cake with a banana cream filling and it is soooooo good! But, they also make a lot of other cakes and cookies that are also good. For instance, this Baumkuchen is from Tokyo Banana. It is a banana and chocolate layered baumkuchen.
Sato had gone to Tokyo for the weekend and he brought back an "Omiyage" (a gift) for me. He had actually gone the weekend before too and he had brought back the Tokyo Banana that I was talking about. I would have shown you a picture of them, but......they were so good that I ate them all without even thinking about taking a single picture of one. Sorry!
If you are in Tokyo or are going to Tokyo, this is something that you should try! They have a lot of different items, but the Tokyo Banana, Kurobe (a chocolate version with a Banana cream filling), and this Baumkuchen is so delicious it would be a crime to not try at least one of them while you are in Tokyo. If you forget to locate this and are at the airport buy a box and take it home with you, either as a gift for someone, or as a little extra gift to yourself. I think only Haneda airport has a store that sells them, but there may be one in Narita airport. I hope you get a chance to try them!
