Dove Biscuits

One of the other place's we visited in Kamakura was the Hoto Sabure store, a company that produces dove shaped biscuits and many other kinds of enticing confectionery. There were many interesting dove related souvenirs on display in the shop but the one that caught my eye was this dove shaped eraser:

The eraser looks exactly like one of their biscuits (not one to leave lying around with young kids!) and opens up to reveal two smaller doves inside, it also comes in a rather attractive tin. Needles to say, I won't be doing much erasing with it! (although I might be tempted to have a nibble).

You can check out their website here:


  1. Does it smell of biscuit? I got a letter with a chocolate shaped stamp on it and yes it smelt of chocolate!

  2. No, it doesn't smell of biscuits. But at least it means I won't be tempted to eat it! Did you lick the stamp?

  3. No, it had already been through the post. Who knows what gathers on those stamps during the journey!
