Momiji Manju - One of the Three Famous Foods in Miyajima

by Michiru - Japan Licensed Guide
(44) 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 traveled from Kyoto on the fast train to Hiroshima. We met at the station but I did have to call her because we didn't see Michiru once we got off train. She asked us what we wanted to see first, we asked for her opinion as we had never been to Hiroshima. She gave us an option to either go to the Tori gates & island first or the Hiroshima land marks and museum. We again asked for her opinion o...

We had a great time with Michi in Hiroshima. She met us at the station and took us through the Hiroshima peace mark, museum and over to Miyajima island. Being vegetarian, she knew of a place where we could get a vegetarian ominiyaki as well. She set a good relaxing pace for the day so things weren't overwhelming and we didn't feel rushed at all either, being able to take our team reading about the...

We had a great day with Michi exploring the Hiroshima Memorial Park and Museum followed by an afternoon visit to see the Itsukushima Shrine (Miyajima). Michi is very knowledgeable about her home city and was happy to do the tour at a slower pace due to my elderly parents needing to take things easier. Michi is warm and approachable and we were so lucky to have booked her - I cannot recommend her h...

Michi, thank you for a terrific day. We began our day with a very emotional experience to the A dome and the museum. Michi told us the story she is the keeper. It was a heartbreaking story and Michi did an amazing job, bringing us back to the aweful day. We ended the day at the beautiful floating tori gate and enjoyed a traditional sweet. Thank you Michi for a very beautiful memorable day.

We spend the day with Michi as she took us to the Peace Memorial and Miyajima Island to see the temple and town. It was quite nice to hear Michi’s knowledge of the bomb. She is quite prepared with visual aids with the information. Our six year old son had a lot of questions to ask. Michi appropriately answered them and even entertained him during the boat ride. Her timing was quite good as ...

She accommodated all of our requests, including meeting us at the airport and pre-purchasing event and transit tickets so we wouldn't have to wait in lines. First she gave us a broad and interesting overview of the area, going back more th...

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.
