Hey guys! It’s me, Chika. We got GODIVA chocolates from US. That’s fabulous. We ate them all at once! lol Last week, March 14th was “the White Day” in Japan. Do you know Japanese boys do not give girls any candies on the St. Valentin’s Day? They just receive present from girls! Then, one month later, on the White Day, they give girls sweets or presents in return for the chocolates given. It’s completely opposite from the US culture. The day is marked not only in Japan but also in South Korea, Cambodia and China. The first celebration was in 1978 in Japan. Some people say that it was started to promote by Fujiya, a popular confectionery company. They sold white chocolates as an answer to dark chocolates at Valentin’s day. To my surprise, he knew about the culture of the White Day, then give me a white chocolates. I thanked him and I wrote on the blackboard, “Thank you for your stay!” #guesthouse #hostel #trip #tripstory #instagram #tokyo #japan
