Today’s purpose was to have “Honmanjyuu” which was said to have been presented to Ieyasu Tokugawa. Manjyuu of Shiose was said to be loved by many famous warrior such as Nobunaga Oda, Mitsuhide Akechi, Hideyoshi Toyotomi and Ieyasu Tokugawa.
I bought “Honmanjyuu (￥432)” and went directly back home.
Delicious!! Red bean paste had good texture and was not that sweet. You could enjoy taste of them to the full. This Honmanjyuu doesn’t have any preservatives, so you should eat them within a day. All tourists are requested to have them at hotels right after your purchase.
