Momiji Manju - One of the Three Famous Foods in Miyajima

by Michiru - Japan Licensed Guide
(54) Reviews

There are three foods you can't miss in Miyajiama.

1. Momiji Manju, a Japanese sweet dumpling

Momiji means a Japanese maple. The name came from its leaf shape.

The original taste was only 'anko,' a sweet bean paste, but now its fillings counts over 30!

You will find fillings such as cheese, chocolate, custard cream, fruit jam pastes, green tea etc...

Even an anko paste is not simple any more; there are flavors with blueberry, sesame, milk, sake etc...

I recommend an 'age momiji,' a deep fried momiji manju. It's like a Tempura.

Filling become smoother and taster,  you'd better eat  while it's hot!

If you can't be satisfied with a normal manju, why don't you bake your Momiji Manju by youeself?

There are several places where you are able to experience it.

They are my hand baked manju.

Look! They look so delicious, aren't they?

 

Momiji Manju is going to be a nice souvenir.

We met Michi at the train station in Hiroshima. We had traveled on the Shinkansen from Osaka for the day. We found the Peace Memorial and Museum to be sobering, and Michi allowed us enough time to absorb the information, and particularly relate it for our two teenagers. She told us her legacy story which was powerful. Lunch was terrific, okonomiyaki, a Hiroshima specialty. For the afternoon, ...

Michi gave us a thorough and thoughtful tour of Hiroshima. She led us through the city by each important yet seemingly ordinary site.
