Reasons Why I Love 日本 #3

Everything has a season... including food and drink. It took me a while to get used to this, but the selection of food items and drinks offered at the conbini, grocery stores, coffee shops, etc. changes with the season. I'm sure there's a rhyme and reason to when/why things change, but it does seem somewhat arbitrary (Mar. 4 was the day this year). This can be frustrating if you've found a particular drink that you really like (for me, it was the Tiramisu latte at Tully's--now replaced by the Orange Marmalade Latte which isn't nearly as good), but it also means that the selection that you have to choose from is constantly changing and expanding. You can't help but try new things, which adds a layer of excitement to life.
