2015 is the year of the strawberry in Japan! We introduce fairs which offer sweet and delicious strawberries!

The numbers 2015 can be read in Japanese "ni" "zero" "ichi" "go". "Ichi" and "go", which stand for 1 and 5, can be read together ichigo - the Japanese word for "Strawberry". And speaking of the "King" of sweets during winter season I immediately think of strawberries. Looking cute, with a sweet and delicious flavor you can find it in all kinds of sweets during this season. However, getting it at the supermarket will be quite expensive.
