    Your best bet is to buy it online from Amazon Japan or Don Quijote. http://goo.gl/tTrRfc

    Can you not get them in Costco? A mate sent some over to me this year from back home. I'm surprised they made it through customs/security! Don't tell anyone! Ooops! Anyway, I'll be out and about in Tokyo this weekend, so I'll keep an eye out for some.

    Thanks Kevin and Tomuu. I used to get them in Costco, but they stopped doing them 3 years ago. ;-( They were lovely ones too. Last year, a friend organised a load and gave her foreign friends them as Christmas presents. Great idea. Swore I'd do it this year as she's moved home, but... well you know yourself. So here I am, cracker-less!!!!!

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!

Trip to Miyazaki this summer. Any recommendations?

Heading to Miyazaki, Kyushu this summer (4 nights, staying in Aoshima). Any recommendations on places to eat would be much appreciated. Also, any sightseeing spots? The priority is surfing but we'll have a car and will still have time to travel around a bit. Cheers!
