This sweet is Momiji Manju, a famous confectionary from a place called Hiroshima, located in the west of Japan.
Inside the bun, there are some baked potato paste of “Naruto Kintoki” from a place called Tokushima is used.
I really like the sweet potato paste! It really went well with the bun!

I got this at AEON, one of the biggest supermarkets in Japan.
They don’t usually sell them, but I was able to buy some because they were having a fair of local confection. It seems that we can buy them anytime at the manufacturer Nishikido’s online store.
