Momiji Manju - One of the Three Famous Foods in Miyajima

by Michiru - Japan Licensed Guide
(26) 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 did the 2 hour walking tour of Hiroshima Peace Park + the additional A-Bomb legacy talk. We learned more in those few hours about the Japanese experience of the A bomb than I had ever learned before. Michi's english was perfectly understandable and she did a great job answering all of our questions (we had a lot!). I think I got much more out of the experience with Michi than had we just toured...
