Cute Cookies

One of my students visited Kamakura this past weekend and brought some treats back to share with everyone. One of the most famous sights in Kamakura is the “Daibutsu” or Giant Buddha, a giant statue of Buddha. She brought some Daibutsu cookie for us. I thought the package was really cute.

I like how Buddha is peaking over the mountains. I was even more impressed with the even cuter cookie inside.

Simply adorable! Only Japan can get away with making religious icons cute. You don’t see westerners making cute Jesus cookies. No way, no how.

  1. He’s not cute though. Action figures are for kick ass action. That’s why he has bending arms for karate moves.
