Wagashi sweets in Kanazawa. 金沢の和菓子

Hi there, Konichiha~

I'd like to post about Japanese sweets Kanazawa in Ishikawa, the city is one of great Japanese wagashi sweets place. I got some Wagashi in Kanazawa.



This is ``Makiginu 巻絹`` one of well known wagashi in Kanazawa, the name came from Noh play ``Makiginu``.  Its inside is sweet bean jam mixed with white miso and covered with habutae rice cake,the taste is not too sweet and not too soft, I'm satisfiled I could eat nicer wagashi.


I got these cute wagashi at the same wagashi shop. It's called ``Turu Kame 鶴亀`` Turu means crane Kame means turtle. It made from wasanbon that is fine grained Japanese sugar. The green might be a pine tree, white blue is turu (crane), green pink is kame (turtle).


This wagashi is called ``Mugibue 麦笛``. Mugibue means barley-straw whistle. Its inside is sweet bean paste and a whole chestnut coverd with barley dough. It was tasty.


The final wagashi is ``aikouka 愛香菓`` , a part of ingredients is armond so there is a little armond flavor I like it☆


I enjoyed all of these Wagashi, I'll write about kanazawa trip soon !!
