Ginza Kikunoya

Kikunoya in Ginza came up with the idea of dry confectionaries for tea time and this colorful fukiyose was developed. Presented in colorful tins the sweets have a long shelf life and are a fun omiyage gift for friends. Opened in 1890 Kikunoya is a busy shop in the heart of Ginza (Ginza 5-9-17). The fukiyose tins start at 1,080 yen ($7.00 with the weak yen). And the tins can be repurposed to hold coins, stationary, a string of pearls. 🙂
