Kawaii Omiyage

A box of 10 streetcar cakes

Omiyage culture of Japan is akin to the oleh-oleh habit of Indonesians and the customary pasalubong in the Philippines.

A souvenir from a trip is something you buy for yourself while an omiyage (or oleh-oleh or pasalubong) is something you buy for others. Normally something edible, a food specialty.

Whereas the oleh-oleh and pasalubong have normal packaging, Japanese cuteness reflects on its omiyage packaging. So cute. So kawaii.
