Fun Link Friday: The Best Japanese Junk Food of 2012

Food culture fascinates me, and one of my favorite things about living in Japan is enjoying  the regional and seasonal sweets. Ichimi (pepper) flavored Kit Kats from Nagano? Sea-salt ice cream from the Noto? Coconut Pocky for summer? Sign me up.
