This is a local confection from a place called Hiroshima where is in the west part of Japan. I really like this package!
I believe most of Japanese know their local confection called “Momiji-manju.” But this one is a little new one. This is called “Nama-Momiji-manju.” “Nama” means raw.
But as for this product, I don’t think “nama” means raw.
The buns’ dough are very chewy compared to their standard “momiji-manju.”
Chewy or a little sticky…
I liked “mubu-an” the best out of three flavors (“koshi-an”, “tsubu-an” and “matcha-an”).
Around 100-150 yen per individual package.
Around 110 kcal per individual package.
|Easy to get?|
I got this at AEON, one of the biggest supermarkets in Japan.
I happened to get this as there was a local-confections event there.
Yes, I will get this again!

Open the box.
There were 6 individual packages in a box.
From the top, “matcha-an” (green tea flavored paste), “tsubu-an” (whole red bean paste) and “koshi-an” (smooth red sweet paste).
Pick up the each one.
My best was “tsubu-an” (whole red sweet bean paste).
Open the individual package.

There was a tray underneath as the bun was really soft.
