The World Baseball Classic, a world baseball tournament, is currently (15 March 2023) being held, with games being played in Tokyo and the US. Japan’s national team, known as Samurai Japan, is through to the quarter-finals with an unbeaten record.
Following the TOKYO 2020 Olympic Games held two summers ago, many reporters from overseas have visited Japan, and although the sports media reporters seem to be enjoying Tokyo for the first time since the Olympics, they are busy and don’t have time for sightseeing. So what keeps them entertained? Japanese snacks.
Potato snacks “Jagarico” and chocolate bar “Black Thunder” are particularly popular. Both are inexpensive and easy to find, and in addition to the standard flavours, the limited edition flavours that change seasonally are also popular. If you have ever been to Japan, you have probably had one of these snacks at least once.
Ok this might be my favorite. A snack food that tastes like French fries without having to go to McDonald’s? Sign me up pic.twitter.com/Wop8x8fcml
