    Tobu Department Store: Shopping Festival

    by Robachu1 Updated Sep 22, 2003

    Very physical shopping

    Tobu is a major department store chain in Japan. Occasionally there are special festivals. This one is a Hokkaido festival. Food and other things from Hokkaido are sold on the 5th floor in the festival area.

    What to buy: Hokkaido specialties such as crab, scallops, salmon, miso-ramen. Of course going to Hokkaido in person would be better but this is the next best thing.

    What to pay: It's not cheap.

    ������I�����

    This shop sells only one thing, fresh roasted chestnuts. How it has been able to stay in business so long is a mystery to me, but it has been a fixture in Utsunomiya for a very long time.

    What to buy: Fresh Roasted Chestnuts

    What to pay: 500yen ~

    SchellenBaum: Neighborhood Bakery

    My wife Kaoru buying some goodies.

    This is a nice little bakery in the neighborhood. This photo was taken at 7:30am which explains why there are so few customers. Usually this bakery is full of people trying to buy the delicious bread, cakes, cookies, sandwiches, etc. as fast as they can.

    What to buy: We are especially fond of the scones. The scones remind me a great deal of my mother's homemade biscuits when I was a child.

    What to pay: Prices are very reasonable. They range from as little as 50yen to several thousand yen for a special order cake. Most items go for between 100 and 200 yen.
