It's long puzzled me why ever seasonally attuned Japan, which has so readily taken up Christmas, Halloween and Valentine's day, has never got onto the Easter bandwagon. I assumed that Easter is a bit too complex... Mixed metaphors with Easter rabbits laying eggs...
Nestle has emerged this year with a stroke of genius Japanese word play.
Kit Kats have established themselves in Japan as a good luck gift. "Kitto Katsu" sounds like the Japanese for "You'll pass / win for sure!" And Kit Kats get given for good luck wishes.
This year they've excelled themselves with Easter kit-kats. "Ea-su-ta ii su-ta-to."
Easter - ii start. ii = good.
So as the new academic year starts across Japan and Easter is a fortnight away so ... wishing you all Happy Easter and a good start to new things.
