Akafuku Mochi

  

This dish on the left is “Akafuku Mochi”.  

The main shop, who’s building is about 130 years old, is also in Okage Yokocho.

And Akafuku Mochi is sold at many other places.

The company started in 1707.

Akafuku Mochi is strained bean paste (Koshi an) over rice cake (Mochi).

Three lines of bean paste represent small streams of the Isuzu river in Ise shrine.

And the white rice cake is a small stone on the riverbed.

It is very famous and so good.

Writing about it made me want to eat it again.

By the way, the dish on the left is Zenzai.
