The most famous of the dragons in the Dragon Ball universe, Shenron has the power to grant any wish once the seven Dragon Balls are assembled. In this Tabe-Masu series, Shenron is made in a green nerikiri with authentic matcha flavor obtained from green tea leaves. Rendered in detail with his piercing red eyes, beard and tail, it's quite a piece of craftsmanship.

The Dragon Balls are mochi wagashi with a custard cream filling, and have the famous star markings on them. In addition to seven varieties with the corresponding number of stars displayed, there are two additional "secret" varieties, making a total of nine for you to discover.

They come in a set of two, one Shenron and one Dragon Ball, chosen at random. Collect all seven and maybe your wishes will come true!
