(sticky rice ball)

人のご縁も旅のつながり。

At Taohata where beans are cultivated, you can create dishes and snacks using soybeans and azuki beans. Beans is an ingredient of many foods, such as tofu, kinako, and redbean paste.
The regional cuisine "maki" is made using smilax leaves and grandma's homemade redbean paste. You can enjoy maki-dango that are steamed to achieve the perfect level of sweetness. Soybean karinto (fried dough) wrapped in brown sugar is a popular snack.

Soybean karinto. It's healthy and perfect as a snack!
