I am a total freak of this. Today, you can find it in most big cities and asia grocery shop. You can find hundred of different taste and colors, just a great way to start with japanese food...

Sembei are Japanese crackers, made from rice. They come in various shapes, sizes, and flavors, usually savory but sometimes sweet. Senbei are often eaten with green tea as a casual snack and offered to visiting house guests as a courtesy refreshment.

Senbei are usually cooked by being baked or grilled, traditionally over charcoal. While being prepared they may be brushed with a flavoring sauce, often one made of shoyu and mirin. They may then be wrapped with a layer of nori. Alternatively they may be flavored with salt or so-called "salad" flavoring.

My favorite... of course with Nori...

In case that you are going to tokyo...
