What the hell is Habutae-Mochi? What an intriguing naming. The origin of this dish is said to be "the texture of the elegant and lustrous Fukui silk fabric, a double-layered weave of feathers, which is like a pearl, was made into a rice cake.

There is also a rice cake called "Habutae-Mochi", which is made in Shiga prefecture, and the rice cake is said to be wonderfully delicious. Ah, I'd like to eat it, but this time I'm going to go with the Habutae-Mochi sweets. By the way, gyuhi is the same kind of rice cake (sweets) as this one, right?

The furoshiki wrapping has a heavy feel to it, and when you pick it up, you feel satisfied that you have bought (or received) the product. Hmmm, it's a strange thing that people admire.

When I opened the package, I found a rice cake wrapped in white powder, divided into ten pieces. When you pick it up with the included bamboo toothpick, you can feel its heavy weight! When you try it, the rice cake is transparent, white, and soft with syrup, but it has a strange, high-class feel to it. It's kind of, but it's good. There seems to be a little bit of sweetness in the powder on the surface. Hmmm... I guess it's sweets after all.

Well, you can usually find sweets wrapped in red bean paste or walnuts, but to eat just the dough is something new. Simply put, it's a kind of "Suama". But if I tell you this, you're going to get mad, I'm sure.

I heard that the "double walnut" from Kinka-do Hayakawa (Katsuyama City) is very popular.
