When I was looking for a souvenir of Gifu, I found a monaka called "Okiagari-Monaka". In Fukushima, the Aizu region's awakening kohoji has recently become especially famous thanks to the Democratic Party's Kōmon-sama, but there was something similar in Gifu. Recently, Japan has been experiencing a series of misfortunes (including the 3.11 earthquake). Let's eat the auspicious Dharma-shaped middle, calm down, heal, and get up.

The Dharma-shaped monaka, about the size of a ping-pong ball, comes in three types: kokura-an, matcha-an, and kinton-an, each with its own personality. The matcha was the most popular Monaka in my family, even though I somehow mistook it for a grape flavor. That's why I'm voting for this one. The other kokura-an and kintonan are also usually delicious, but this is, you know, pretty sweet.

Well, that's right, the Monarchs are more about good luck than good taste.

Now that I'm an adult, I feel that it's an indispensable thing, and it's the only way to have a middle-aged person. The collaboration of the exquisite taste is very good.
