Mie, where the Ise Jingu Shrine, famous for visiting Ise, is located, is a place where many rice cake sweets such as Akafuku, Ofuku-Mochi, Henba-Mochi, etc. are made, perhaps because of the meaning of offering them to the Shinto rituals. This time, I decided to try one of the "Naga-Mochi" from among those Mie's rice cakes.

By the way, "Naga-Mochi" is made in many shops in this area, and today we will take on the challenge of "Naga-Mochi of Sasaiya" in Yokkaichi, which has a long history among them. There are also other famous ones such as "Kinjyo-Ken's Taihaku-Naga-Mochi" in Yokkaichi and "Naga-Mochi-Ya-Roho's Yasu-Naga-Mochi" in Kuwana.

When I opened the package, I found "Naga-Mochi" wrapped one by one. When I took it out of the bag, it was about ten centimeters long, soft and transparent, so much so that I could see the anko inside. And it is a fragrant rice cake with a burnt eye that invites your appetite. When I lifted it up and took it to my mouth with a wandering recoil, the inside was azuki-an, with a rustic oyakise-type (or ume ga edamochi-type) flavor.

There is a sense of discomfort in the fact that it is in a bag, as if it were a dish. Yes, it's surprisingly small, and with this amount, if you don't give three bottles to each person, they may not be satisfied. No, I don't need the amount because it's a good luck charm.
