Perhaps one of the most popular edible souvenirs from Japan, Tokyo Banana is always a winner. The treat is simply a banana-shaped sponge cake filled with various types of custard. The original is banana flavoured, but these days you’ll find special editions like caramel, honey or even coffee milk. Keep an eye out for Tokyo Banana collaborations featuring your favourite characters like Pikachu, Eevee and Doraemon. Not a cake fan? Tokyo Banana has even expanded to include other small confectionery such as cookies.
You can find Tokyo Banana at Tokyo Banana World at Tokyo Station or Daimaru Tokyo. For more retail information, visit here. ¥594 for a box of four
