There are 12 Kuri-Kinton (mashed sweet chestnuts) shops in Nakatsugawa City, Gifu Prefecture (in 2005), and they are producing and selling different flavors of Kuri-Kinton. So "Kuri-Kinton" isn't just found in restaurants, it's also found in candy shops.

It seems that Kuri-Kinton is a different kind of wagashi than Kuri-Kinton for Osechi cuisine.

So, out of all the various "Kuri-Kinton" books, I wanted a jar with a jar in it.  When I opened the lid of the jar, I found a dried Kuri-Kinton in the shape of a rag, and a brown astringent chestnut on top of it. And when I picked up the bottom of it, there was a whole red bean mound of Dainagon in the bottom.

It says to mix it and eat it, so I tried it, and it didn't look particularly different when I mixed it up, and it didn't look like it was mixed up that much as it stayed dry. In other words, you should eat the red beans at the same time... When I tried it, it tasted like chestnuts and azuki beans (ama-natto style) were also available. No, I couldn't express it in a good way, but it's not all bad, that it is.

I don't know what is in the jar, but this jar has a taste that makes you want to put plum paste. It's a Mino pot of a pretty good texture. Hmm, I don't think it would be better to sell this with pickled plums. No, I want you to sell it to me like that...

I digressed quite a bit, but in short, Kuri-Kinton is delicious even if it's a Japanese sweets.
