The Beauty of Daifuku Sweets

By 7 May 2015Best products, Food

You’ll see many different kinds of sweets while in Japan, but you should definitely try the beauty of Daifuku sweets, one of the most traditional confectionaries. It’s a mochi (a glutinous rice cake) stuffed with sweet filling, most typically anko, red bean paste.

The most popular is Ichigo (strawberry) Daifuku with white mochi stuffed with anko and a strawberry (Picture 1 below). Sakuramochi is equally popular, consisting of a pink-colored mochi with anko and a pickled Sakura leaf (Picture 2 below).
