Want to feel the smells of spring? Try this Wagashi Sweets Torayaki Haruno Kaori offered by Sentaro (仙太郎 トラ焼 春の香).
Over a rice cake made with Japanese mugwort with Azuki red mung beans in it, a tiny piece of salted cherry blossom flower gives you an accent of spring. Please do NOT drink beer at the same time, as it completely blows away the precious moment spreading out in your mouth…
Also, the name of the sweets, Torayaki, should be mentioned. They say its browned surface looks like a little tiger. Agree or not? Anyway, tora means tiger. Torayaki literally stands for tiger rice cake! Tame it well please.
