Summer is coming to a close and fall is about to start. That means that the last of the summer festivals (matsuris) are taking place, I'm sad to see them go - the dancing, the energy of the beating of the taiko drums, the whimsical games (fishing for balloons) and snacks.
What's next? With the fall weather comes beautiful colors in the leaves, and new flavors come to the fore as well. What flavors? Well, pear for one!
We don't have pear flavored snacks yet (it's still summer!) but perhaps next month.
Surprise for those getting our boxes this month - it's an extra large box!
