New Zealand cookies can now be tasted on the streets of Tokyo.

Kiwi biscuit company Cookie Time has opened a cookie bar in Japan, similar to the Queenstown cookie bar.

On Friday Tokyoites queued up for the bar's opening, located in the popular shopping district of Harajuku, the Shibuya Keizai newspaper reported.

It was the Cookie Time brand's first foreign store.

The cookies were described as organic, and the bar menu included the original Chocolate Chunk cookie.

Souvenirs and merchandise bearing the Cookie Muncher mascot were also for sale.

The Christchurch-based company celebrated its 30th birthday this year. 

Earlier this year the brand discussed its plans of taking the cookie bar model international.
