This is a local confection from a place called Tochigi province where is north-east part of Japan, Kanto district.
Tochigi province is famous for its strawberries! Of course I have heard the brand name, “tochiotome”.
There’s a description that “tochiotome” is bigger than “nyoho” (another famous strawberry brand from Tochigi province), less sour and sweet strawberry!
Crispy and mild sweetness!
I think it’s popular and good for your workplace as a souvenir. Since it’s very light and everyone can eat it even after lunch!
Sorry… I forgot.
Perhaps around 500 yen if my memory is correct.

I got this at a souvenir shop in a hotel when I visited Nikko, Tochigi. I have never seen it around my hometown.
Not sure but perhaps. I would sure get Kinu-no-Seiryu next time for a souvenir, that is one of my favorite Tochigi local confections.
But Kinu-no-Seiryu has sweet bean paste called “anko” and some people don’t like “anko” very much so I would get this one too!
