When I stopped by our magic bar for the first time in about three weeks (having been to Sweden and Osaka lately), my boss produced a bag of presents for me. It was omiyage (souvenirs) from Hakodate, that one of our customers who lives there had brought with her when she visited the bar (and I was in Sweden).
At first, I just got a big brown paper bag from the hamburger chain Lucky Pierrot (famous in Hakodate) and I was a bit worried that someone had left me an old hamburger that no longer would be edible... But it turned out that inside there were no hamburgers. There were noodles, a cup, some playing card shaped rubber stickers, some "Swedish" candy, and more! A very nice present.
