    "A Japanese confectionary shop located on the Nagacho Shotengai shopping street in Oarai Town. The shop's popularity exploded after its ""Mitsu Dango,"" skewered triple dumplings which are a local Oarai favorite, were featured in a popular animated television series. Plump mitarashi-style flour dumplings covered with a special sauce and kinako toasted soybean flour, their novel texture combined with their familiar, old-fashioned flavor have long made them a favorite with locals. Customers can purchase a single skewer or sets of five or 10 skewers. Now that Oarai has become a mecca for anime fans, the shop also has anime-themed displays and sells merchandise as well."

    甘いもの好きなのでふらっと寄ったお店です。 「みつだんご」というみたらし団子的なのが有名なお店ですが、甘いもの好きでも少し甘いと感じるお店です。 甘いものが苦手な人はちょっとつらいかも知れません。味は甘いですが、お団子はすごくやわらかく、つるっと食べれます。 1本から買えますが「えっ1本でいいの?」みたいな感じで言われますが、相当甘いものを欲していない限り1本で充分だと思います。
