Hi, I am Sanny, and I am from Indonesia. I lived in Okinawa, Japan to study Mechanical Systems Engineering at Okinawa National College of Technology. As an International student in Japan, first of all I really loved Japan, I loved their unique cultures, their funniest TV shows, and etc. Because of that reason, I want to introduce Japan with my articles through the world. Japan is the amazing country!

Traditional Japanese Sweets in May

Starting from April 29 is Golden Week, a week of national holidays in Japan which include Constitution Day, Greenery Day, and Children's Day; making May one of the busiest months of the year in Japan. They have a “Tango no Sekku” custom to pray for well-being and healthy growth of boys on 5 May, Children's Day. The types of food that come with the season are also exciting to look forward to. There are two kinds of wagashi (Japanese sweets) eaten during this “Tango no Sekku”.
