Narita International Airport is the most frequently used airport in Japan by foreign travellers. With more than 3 million people using the airport every year, this airport is the gateway into Japan. If you are ever using Narita Airport, I highly recommend buying these top 3 sweets as souvenirs when leaving Japan.
The Tokyo Bananas are similar to the Twinkies sold in the States. This most popular Japanese treat is a sponge cake surrounding pasted bananas and custard cream.
Other than the traditional flavour shown above, there are various flavours available and new ones constantly being released.
There are multiple flavors other than the ones mentioned above so check them out when you pass through Narita Airport!

The Tokyo Buono is a stick shaped cheesecake. Made from camembert cheese and cream cheese sandwiched between two slices of pound cake, this treat is loved by the young and elderly alike here in Japan. The Tokyo Buonos come in packs of 5, 8 and 12. These sweets last a fair amount of time without spoiling so they are perfect as a souvenir from Japan!
