Australian food hard to find in Japan 2015/3/23 11:39
Australia
I am visiting Japan for the second time shortly & want to take some food for my friend that she may not have seen or tasted before. Last time I took Tim Tams (chocolate biscuits), Vegemite & some Australian honey. Does anyone have any further suggestions?

Tiny Teddy from Arnotts will be a nice gift with a nice package.

Tim Tam can be purchased at local supermarkets such as Seiyu and International supermarkets in JP.

Where in Japan is your friend?
In Tokyo (and big cities) Tim Tams are not hard to find, Cadbury's and Vegemite are available if you look.
Why not ask your friend what s/he misses?

If it were me putting in a request it would be
- Yellow Box Honey,
- Pomegranate Balsamic vinegar
- Madura Tea
- Snakes Alive (the one by the Australian Food Company, not the Allens ones)
and a chokito.

Caramello Koala's normally are the biggest hit if you are bringing food for kids - or even big kids.

I can confirm that Tim Tam's are not really worth bringing as they can be easily purchased in many places - unless you want to teach them about Tim Tam slams which is a very foreign but delicious trick to show them...

No, It's not hard to find. Search for Fourbody health food store in Australia they are providing International delivery. One of my friends got their product from India.

We're talking about *in* Japan I presume? If it's international delivery, of course it's accessible.

Lamingtons!!!! Buy large pack from Woolies AND some finger sized ones as well and freeze them. Buy a large square Decor container : they will fit in, with the finger ones around the outside!
Then put them in a freezer bag, in the middle of your suitcase.
We do this every trip for the Japanese wife of a family member: she had them here in Australia, and says you canft find anything like them in Japan!
