What the hell? What is this Osaka specialty, Awa-Okoshi, Honor Kinpai? And also, what the hell is the original Tsu no Kiyoshi and Futatsu wells? There are times when I can't keep up with the Osaka vibe and sigh. You shouldn't think that it means anything or that there is a reason for it. In many cases, it's just momentum. I think it's up to me.

The wrapping paper is a picture of a number of Awa-Okoshi, and when you tear up the wrapping paper, you'll find a real one with the same design as the wrapping paper, which is a polite and persistent stunt. That's how I finally arrived at a piece of "Awa-Okoshi"...

When I opened the wrapping paper, I found a surprisingly large Awa-Okoshi, which, if you look closely, was cut into three pieces with black sesame seeds sprinkled here and there. I took a bite of it, and it was hard. It seems the teeth need to be strong. So if I split it into three or more pieces and put them in my mouth, I can chew them with my back teeth. You'll find that you'll be able to get the most out of it.

Then, with a gurgling bite, oh, so sweet. It's fragrant. Halfway through, it suddenly becomes soft and melts away with its own saliva. Hmm, what's good is good. I have a feeling that this will be loved by the obachan in Osaka who love ametimes (I heard they always carry them around). Well, it's a nostalgic taste that I want to eat once in a while...

Simply put, I think it's one of the dagashi in Osaka. The atmosphere was a little different from that of Tokyo's thunderclapper.
