  • I believe that everyone must be familiar with Doraemon(ドラえもん) series, be it manga , anime or both.
    The manga, published way back in 1969 is one of the best-selling manga series worldwide and has won many awards including the Osamu Tezuka Culture Award and has been adapted to anime series and multimedia franchise.

    So popular that it has become the Japanese cultural icon and now using the Doraemon as inspiration, Lawson released the 食べマス (eat) Series featuring the popular character of the series.

    The new 和菓子(wagashi) Japanese Sweets series is now so adorable that you won’t be able to have a bite. Not only does it look super kawaii(cute), but it also tastes delicious and comes in two innovative flavours: custard and strawberries.
