Food gifts for Japanese friends?
My Husband and I are going to visit Tokyo at the end of August, he does a lot of informal business and has a lot of friends in Tokyo, and as per Japanese Custom wants to bring small "omiyage" ( gifts) to give people there. When his friends come here they bring small gifts like Japanese Tea, Dry Noodles, etc- the gift is usually something small and transient/can be consumed- I.E. something that won't take up space in people's houses, and something that is local specialty or delicacy of the area they are visiting from.
We have given See's Candy as gifts in the past, but with the Summer heat we don't want to transport Chocolate. Any suggestions from the SF Bay area of what to bring?
