Momiji Manu: such a cute and delicate looking treating, Healthy treat, and beans are excellent brain food.
Manju are one of the most traditional Japanese treats - and I think the momiji ones are the best of all! The fact that this place has been in operation as long as it has is probably testament to why their stuff is so delicious. Try them!!
