Moment of Joy
At Okashi-no-kura Sakuraya, you can buy delicious Japanese sweets made from sake and sake lees. The most popular wagashi is the “Tarumonaka,” a barrel-shaped monaka filled with red bean paste. You can choose from two types: grained bean paste made with Dainagon azuki beans from Hokkaido, or white bean paste mixed with sake lees and sake. This is a delicious Japanese snack that can be enjoyed by people who don’t like sake and children who can’t drink sake.
