What are some flavors you find reminiscent of Japan?

Hello, everyone! I'm new here, so I wasn't sure whether to place this topic here, or in the Japan section. Sorry if I got it wrong!

I belong to a Japanese society that's going have a bake sale soon. Bake sales make me giddy, so I immediately signed up. There's no limit as to how much you can bring, and your baked goods don't have to be traditional Japanese foods. However, if you have any traditional recipes, I'd love to consider them!!

I already have a recipe for chocolate cupcakes with a matcha frosting, but I was hoping to do one or two things more. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble coming up with SWEET flavors that are evocative of Japan. I was thinking of possibly trying to tie in red bean to a cookie...but I'm not exactly sold on that yet.

Any suggestions?
