Abekawa-Mochi is a name I sometimes hear. But I can't think of what kind of rice cake it is. Oh, what kind of rice cake is it, let's try it then. Kura is the Shizuoka dialect that I learned from my seniors at university. I'm sorry that I didn't have enough time to write, so I went into a dialect.

Incidentally, according to the Shizuoka City Tourism Association, the origin of "Abekawa Mochi" is that they offered a rice cake covered with gold powder and soybean flour from the gold mine of Abekawa River to Ieyasu. In short, it should be thought of as a soybean flour rice cake. And don't get the kanji for Abe and Abe wrong!

When I opened the box and ripped open the package, two types of rice cakes, "anko" and "yellow flour," came out in a sleigh. There's something different about eating anko mochi. I wonder what this is... Hmm, the yellow flour has a different taste too. The rice cake is a kind of clear candy, but... Too bad I couldn't see that question in the source material.

A bag of sugar and yellow flour is attached to the main body, but if you don't use it, you can eat it with elegant taste.

Abekawa-Mochi in Shizuoka said that the best way to eat rice cakes is to go to the local rice cakes shop (three teahouse style shops on the east side of Abekawa Bridge: Ishibeya, Kagoya and Hashimoto-ya).
In addition, there was also Abekawa-Mochi sold as a souvenir, which was the subject of this report.
