Very tasty! Passing by on the way to the Ninja Village, I was attracted by the flag of Kuri Daifuku. I didn’t expect to encounter super delicious wagashi! !
There are three pieces in a box (I forgot how many yen), and they are also sold individually.
The outer skin has a slightly salty taste, paired with sweet but not greasy red bean paste, and wrapped with large chestnuts. It was so delicious that I finished one in three mouthfuls🥺💗

The whole dish is unforgettably amazing, and the most unforgettable thing is its salty crust, which really balances out this little bit.
I can only say that you can buy and see if you pass by!

Because I really just saw it while passing by and didn’t take any photos, Dafu was quickly eaten by me🤣

Oh, he’s also very nice and polite to the lady boss✨
It’s so delicious that I’m still thinking about going back to Taiwan, so I just came here to leave a comment to promote everyone 🥳


Last time I visited in the afternoon, Mame Daifuku was sold out. This time, I visited the store shortly after it opened. My family says that the black beans are the most delicious of all the bean daifuku I've ever eaten. I'm selfishly asking for more beans, but the softness of the mochi and the deliciousness of the bean paste are delicious. This time I'll give you some fruit daifuku.


It's near the Toei Studio, and the beans used in the Mame Daifuku here are black beans from Tamba and are delicious. Speaking of Futaba's mame mochi, Demachiyanagi is famous, but the mame mochi here is also exquisite.
