I picked up a few bags in a shop near Kiyomizu temple. Then I circled back and picked up a few more. I'm so glad I did! When it comes to buying something yummy that can only be found abroad, you need to seize the moment!
I also found a pretty furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) in the same district. It's double-sided, and I immediately thought of our church friends when I saw the green, dotted pattern.
This secured the package inside. A second knot completed the wrap!
As a final touch, I manipulated the knotted fabric to expose more of the contrasting pattern.
This couple writes a lot. We paired the yaki yatsuhashi with pens for their note-taking, journaling, to-do listing, etc!
