Have you tried the Japanese Baked Chocolate confectionery "CREAP" ใ‚ฏใƒชใƒผใƒ— ?

Have you tried the Japan-made confectionery "CREAP" or ใ‚ฏใƒชใƒผใƒ—?

It is very innovative because it transforms the company's CREAP coffee whitener into a yummy confectionery.

The confectionery is made by Morinaga. They have built on their coffee whitener CREAP and used it to make a new confectionery they called BAKE chocolate!

The confectionery looks like a loaf of bread when it comes out of the individual sachet wrapped in freshness foil.

It is crunchy on the outside and very soft on the inside and then just melts in your mouth. A very pleasant texture and mouth experience which is not overly sweet.

They are very moreish, you cannot stop at just one!

The confectionery comes in a 27-item, multi-pack each portion weighs which weighs approximately 83g, and the whole package is 1.9 kg

What makes them different is that when the house is built you can allocate which rooms have a gas wall connection plug.

This allows you to move around the house to different rooms.

You can also lock the temperature

๐ŸŒธ Renting an apartment in Japan

๐ŸŒธJapanese Customer Experience: Renting an apartment in Japan

Japanese customers have great convenience when they rent an apartment in Japan.

Based on our experiences

* Japanese apartments have some amazing technology included:

๐ŸŒธ A digital bath, that automatically fills the water and heats it to your favourite temperature, so that it is ready for when you arrive home!

๐ŸŒธ A Smart Toilet that has a heated seat, dryer, and bidet

๐ŸŒธ Heated floor

๐ŸŒธ Digital Keyless locks

* Agents come to you with the keys and then drive you to a range of apartments.

* Repairs are done the same day - just a phone call and for example, new tatami mats can be replaced, etc.

* If you rent a fully furnished apartment, they will order new bedding for you (futons, pillows, duvet, sheets) and have them delivered free, often they will be in the apartment before you move in.

๐Ÿ’ฅJapanese sobagara pillows are the world's best!! ๐Ÿ’ฅ

- They are 100% natural
- They mold to your neck and head
- Are refreshed in the sun
- Life-changing once you try them

* The apartment is cleaned prior to you moving in by a team of experts. (I visited my apartment prior to moving in and saw a team of three scrubbing with toothbrushes, steam cleaning, and doing the full works).
This is all included in the price and not extra.

                             Photo: Woven silk banner Kurama Kyoto Japan #japanesecustomer

''Face House by Kazumasa Yamashita, 1974. Unusual enough to receive a praising write-up in The Architectural Review in 1975.

The eyes, nose, and mouth are functional, serving as doors and windows (there’s even a small window hidden in a nostril). The ground floor was designed for two retail spaces, while the second and third floors are a four-bedroom family residence with a roof terrace above. Located in Kyoto. Not for sale.

Article: How do restaurants in Japan ๐ŸŒธspoil their customers?

 Spoiling your customers is an important skill in managing and retaining them.

Take for instance the level of detail Japanese restaurants place on making a customer's visit pleasant and convenient. 

The issuing of hot towels to wipe their hands, the glass of ice water, and the quick delivery of drinks. 

Pictures on the menu show the food, sell its uniqueness and aid for easy and quick decision making. 

Padded seats to make the dining experience comfortable. Plastic bags for placing your umbrella in if it's raining outside. 

Folding the toilet paper in the bathroom so the customer doesn't fumble. Quick delivery of the food. Hot food that sizzles ensuring freshness and quality. 

Constantly visiting the table, delivering food, removing plates, and checking that everything is ok. 

Topping up glasses of water, changing ashtrays full of rubbish, and wiping the table.
Quick delivery and high accuracy of the bill as most restaurants use electronic ordering systems generated from the table. 

Quick processing of the bill and a warm and hearty thank you when finishing and leaving the restaurant. 

Spoiling your customers is a great way to build loyalty and increase retention.
