Mugwort-kneaded Dumplings with sweet red bean paste
My tour, Japanese hometown in movie setting, Shibamata give you delight of Japanese sweets, Kusadango which is a rice-flour dumpling mixed with mugwort and sweet red bean paste. Along an approach path to Shibamata Taishakuten Temple, there are several dumpling shops. I sometimes go to Shibamata and enjoy eating Kusadango. Besides that, various shops such as soba or buckwheat noodle and other restaurants, souvenior shops are attraction for visitors. The main character called Tora-san in series of the movie(produced from 1969 to 1995) is still in the heart of Japanese. Tora-san's hometown, Shibamata is also Japanese hometown. I would like you to feel the atmosphere of eastern part of Tokyo. Why don't you join me?
