It’s nice having visitors from Japan. It’s not just the fun things they want to do (like visit Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross where, can you believe it, I’d never been before), it’s also the omiyage (little gifts or souvenirs). Last week my visitors gave me a box of Hello Kitty Sablé biscuits. Shall we open them?
Inside the pretty wrapping is a pink box. It says ‘For sale in Japan only’. That’s nice.
Inside each packet is a Hello Kitty-shaped biscuit.
