Yoku Moku – The “Go To” Omiyage

If you’ve visited Tokyo, it’s very likely that you’ve come across Yoku Moku, a French-inspired Japanese cookie company.  Their cookies are extremely rich and delicate, using fresh butter and the “perfect balance” of cookie dough and chocolate.

Their assorted tin boxes are incredibly popular omiyage when traveling abroad since they are delicious, relatively reasonably priced, and packaged nicely.  It also helps that there are locations selling these treats in the airports!

Although the packaging isn’t as sophisticated or well-styled as other companies in Japan, I think it still beats a lot of packaging in the States.  I bought half a suitcase of Yoku Moku for everyone back home (many upon request!).  In the US, a few Yoku Moku items are sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus.
