Welcome to Oyatsu Break! A brand new Japanese snack food blog. Maintained by Christopher Butcher and run out of Toronto, Canada, this blog will review Japanese snack foods that Chris has picked up in his travels, that have been imported into Canada, or that folks from Japan were nice enough to send him.
