What foods should I try in Tokyo?

Yuta Takahashi Yuta Takahashi, Living in Japan

I would like to recommend to eat Takenoko no sato.  It is one of famous snacks in Japan, it is made of chocolate and cookies. It cost about 200yen.  If you eat it, you will get sweet and lovely taste.  It is amazing.  There is also different version, it calls, Kinokonoyama. It's also great.
