When I visit Japan, one of the highlights of my trip is to indulge in the delicious food. As I have a sweet tooth, I am especially in heaven with all those confections, from the traditional Japanese sweets to the European-influenced baked goods available in Japan. At the end of the trip, I even check out the airport shops to buy additional sweets to bring home.
To my delight, I found a new Japanese sweets store in Uwajimaya Bellevue. Now I can satisfy my sweet tooth whenever I want. J.sweets has seven other locations around the US, but this is its first in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a premium sweets shop with varieties from renowned confectioners across Japan, including YOKU MOKU, Minamoto Kitchoan, Mochi Cream, and Kobe Fugetsudo. My favorites are Daifuku and Mochi Cream. These delightful confections are not overly sweet and go well with either green tea or black tea. No more of those last minute, impulse-buying sweets shopping sprees at the airport for me.
