Momiji Manju - One of the Three Famous Foods in Miyajima

by Michiru - Japan Licensed Guide
(37) 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.

My wife and I scheduled a day with Michi and had a customized tour that met our expectations perfectly. We were pretty worn out by the time we got to this part of our trip and she adjusted the schedule to fit our less than energetic pace. She was extremely prepared and informative and spoke excellent english. She was easy to talk to and a pleasure to be around. Highly reccommend her.

Michiru gave us a wonderful tour of Miyajima island and the Peace Park. Her knowledge and ability to convey it made for an unforgettable day. And a huge bonus is that she has been trained to speak on behalf of the atomic bomb survivors and gave us a private 45 minute talk on behalf of one of the survivors. It was a moving and thought provoking end to an amazing day. I highly recommend!!!
