Moment of Joy
At the Yamadaya Miyajima Flagship Store, you can have the full experience of baking Momiji Manju by hand. You can make one with Koshi-an (mashed, sweet red bean paste) filling and one with chocolate filling, and bake them using the traditional hand-baking technique. The resulting Manju are different from those sold in the market, and you can enjoy the freshly baked sweets right there on site. Before or after the hand-baking experience, you can also take a tour of the factory where all the products are actually made.
