Tsukamoto饅頭処 つかもと

Japanese Confectionery

A long-standing Japanese confectionary shop located in Kawai Town, Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The shop’s signature item is the egara manju, a renowned Wajima sweet. Smooth sweet bean paste wrapped in a glutinous rice flour dough which is dyed a vivid yellow using Cape jasmine which is then steamed to create an extremely rare Japanese treat. The name is said to come from its resemblance to an iga Japanese chestnut, the pronunciation of which was corrupted into “egara.” The name is sometimes also written with characters meaning “fate,” “congratulations,” and “good” for good luck. Extremely popular, egara manju often sell out early in the day.

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula.
