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.

この和菓子は「巻絹」という金沢を代表する和菓子です。巻絹という名前の由来は能の「巻絹」からきているそう☆白みその餡を羽二重餅で包んでおり、甘すぎず柔らすぎず、美味しい和菓子を食べることができました。


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).

この可愛い和菓子も同じお店で購入しました~、鶴亀という和三盆で作られている干菓子で、緑が松、白と青のは鶴、緑とピンクのは亀のようです、こういう可愛さは和菓子ならではですよね~!


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.

この和菓子は麦笛という名前で、甘すぎないあんこと1粒の栗が大麦の生地でくるまれています、美味しかったです☆



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

最後の和菓子は「愛香菓」原材料の一部にアーモンドが使用されているので、ほのかにアーモンドの味がして和菓子の上品さを満喫☆


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