Ishiwari-Zakura


Speaking of souvenirs from Morioka, Ishiwari-Zakura is the most famous confectionery in Iwate Prefecture. I don't see people buying Ishiwari-Zakura these days (although it was). It's sad. So many people don't know about it, I guess. In the old days, Morioka was called Ishiwari-Zakura.

By the way, Ishiwari-Zakura is an actual cherry tree that cracked open the center of a huge rock and made it look like a cherry tree. It is a rare tree that has grown so large that it makes you want to see it. It is a course of field trip for elementary school students in the prefecture, and whenever the cherry blossoms are in bloom, we always visit the tree in the prefecture. It is the kind of cherry tree that appears in the news.


The fairly large wafer (or rather cone) is properly patterned with cherry blossoms. When you open the bag, you can smell the smell of cream, and when you eat it, you can taste the cream between the two wafers. popped into my mouth. It had been quite a while since I had eaten it, as if it had been a classy and delicious treat when I had eaten it as a child. I remember. However, nowadays, I can't help but feel that they have become a very common and ordinary snack. Is this the fate of western style sweets?

But it's a candy that kids love... It's a bit like the Gofuru in Kobe.
