Just in time for Christmas, Rinkya is selling Japanese “Okashi” (candy) Grab Bags!
The entire selection can be found here Each grab bag will contain approximately 6 candies! The ingredients are listed on the page, and as you can see some ingredients definitely fall into the weird japan food category.
The candies are perfect for stocking stuffers or games with your friends- Wrap each candy in wrapping paper, number them in sequential order, challenge whomever you give them to and the person challenged has to finish the one they open before they can open up the next one. There are yummy ones and gross tasting ones, so be sure to record their expressions while eating!
These candies are nostalgic in Japan- most are dime store candies from years past.
Each grab bag is $10 and you can order on our ship request form here
Soy, egg, dairy, nuts and fish are in candies, so please read the ingredients page before ordering, if you have allergies!
These rose flavored breath strips are said to be “A Good Breathe For You” Although promising to be romantic, our staff thought the breath strips tasted like an R rated word that rhymes with grass. However they are certainly weight conscious, only 4 calories for the entire package of 24 strips.

Takashimaya department stores in Japan has the perfect gift for the person who has everything- a 1.8 million dollar preserved rose tree decorated with diamonds. Comes with a teddy bear wearing a diamond necklace! Adorned with nearly 100 carats of diamonds from Southern Africa and Australia. The tree is based on a design by Parisian flower boutique Claude Quinquau.
A 3rd Annual Geta Stacking Contest took place over the weekend in Sakaiminato, Japan.
Geta are shoes traditionally worn with kimonos and yukatas, but are also worn with normal clothing nowadays. Typically made with wood and the flap with cloth, they also elevate you inches (much loved by short Japanese woman!)
The “teeth” on the bottom of the shoe are used to stack the getas up high in the contest shown above.
