Takoyaki (octopus dumplings) in Osaka

Our company is located in Osaka and Takoyaki (octpus dumplings) is famous in Osaka.

We can find “Takoyaki Stand” on the street in Osaka and it might be only in Osaka.

I was born in Kyoto, but whenever I came to Osaka in the school days, I ate Takoyaki as snacks.

Now I eat Takoyaki with my kids during holiday shopping.

Our eyes are focused on Takoyaki chef who cook round Takoyaki.  In five minutes,  freshly baked Takoyaki is served.

Good sauce, mayonnaise, and dried bonito!  It is really delicious!

Maybe we can create “Takoyaki Stamp!.  Why Not!

Thanks for your attention!

Children’s Day – Koinobori (Carp Streamer)

Towards Children’s day of May 5th, we could see “Koinobori (Carp Streamer)” throughout Japan, although such opportunites are becoming less and less compared to the old days.

Koinobori has been around since EDO PERIOD.

People displayed Koinobori in their garden praying for success and good health of boys.

Nowadays people display also inside the house but Koinobori streaming in the open air gives me nostalgic feelings.



We will make and sell “KOINOBORI Carp Streamer” Stamp next year!!
