Japan has a long-rooted tradition of purchasing famous local souvenirs when traveling to bring back for family, friends, or for that special someone. These gifts are known as omiyage.
Now let’s have a look at one recommended local omiyage from the Hakata area.
Hakata Yuki Usagi
Hakata Yuki Usagi (literally “Snow Bunny”) are cute rabbit-shaped marshmallow treats with a light, fluffy texture that simply melt in your mouth. These marshmallow sweets are made light and fluffy using gelatin and are free of egg products, making them a delicious treat that even those with egg allergies can enjoy.
