Momiji Manju - One of the Three Famous Foods in Miyajima

by Michiru

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.

I also an official ‘A-bomb legacy successor’ designated by the City of Hiroshima. An A-bomb Legacy Successor is a memory keeper of the A-bomb survivors. To ensure that the A-bomb survivors' experiences and desires for peace are faithfully inherited and shared with as many people as possible, the City has started a three-year training program for official ‘A-bomb Legacy Successors.’ It is possible to include my lecture in my tour. It is appreciated that if you could let me know upon your booking.
