According to Weathernews, the flowering forecast for Tokyo in 2017 is March 22nd. It seems that this weekend will be the peak of cherry blossom viewing.
Sake and snacks are essential items for adult cherry blossom viewing. This time, I will introduce the snacks that the author brings every year from the editorial department purveyor supermarket "Seijo Ishii". We have selected mainly original products so that they can be easily obtained at any store.
Entry No1: Seijo Ishii Specially seasoned quail eggs
Domestic quail eggs are carefully simmered in domestic soy sauce, Okinawan black honey, and Japanese-style soup stock and seasoned. It is best to pour a slightly sweet and tasty sauce and rich quail with sake. It is individually wrapped and can be stored at room temperature, so you can rest assured that it will be left over (although not so much).
Entry No2: Seijo Ishii Smoked mixed nuts
Smoked mixed nuts such as macadamia nuts, cashew nuts, almonds and walnuts. The scent of smoke from large nuts and the individuality of each are mixed, and once you eat it, it will not stop.
Entry No3: Naruki Ishii Smoked Sakura Smoked Cheese
Smoked continuation, but this is processed cheese smoked with wild cherry chips. The scent of smoke that drifts from the moment you open the bag will make you drink. The temperature is still low, so it's easy to carry.
Entry No4: Naruki Ishii White chocolate and strawberry porbolone
Sweets are a must-see for cherry blossom viewing with women. I chose my favorite Porbolone from the "desica" series that debuted last year. The crunchy, crumbled texture goes great with sparkling wine and cocktails. This is a new flavor that uses Tochiotome juice, but it looks cute, so it's sure to be a girl's favorite.
Entry No5: Seijo Ishii Homemade Sausage
If you can afford to cook at home, you should definitely boil the sausages with you. The homemade wiener made from 100% raw domestic pork is a gem that won the gold medal at the "2017 DLG Contest". You can fully enjoy the deliciousness of the ingredients without any extra taste other than the sweet and rich gravy and the crisp salty taste.
It's a little expensive compared to what you can buy at a convenience store, but I think it's suitable for enjoying the cherry blossoms once a year. Please refer not only to the secretary but also to the person who spoke to you!
