What is the "Ote" of Okayama's specialty "Ote-Manjuu"? It seems that the shop was located at the Otemon gate of Okayama Castle. Hmmm... It's a bit of a shame, because I was expecting there to be a more interesting origin... So, it is said that there is an Otemannu (manju) in Nagaoka in Niigata, and it was named from the fact that there was a shop at the Otemon gate of Nagaoka Castle. I wonder if "major" is the preferred noun.

I don't know about this, but it's Shogi that's the big one. It's a very pleasant move, isn't it? It's so frustrating that I hate being alive when it's done to the contrary!

Out of the box is the Ote-Manjuu. I've seen this one before, even though it looks different and has a different size. Hmm, was it a Yamabuki bun (Yamazaki of bread)... It's about the size of a ping-pong ball, and the pattern on the cod is an indescribable feature. And it smells like steamed buns and looks very tasty.

When I tried it, the outer skin of the manjuu looked like a very thin skin of a sake manjuu, and there was a simple "koshi-an" inside. Well, to put it simply, it's no exaggeration to say that everything is anko. Hmmm, I think this one smells like sake. Well, I don't dislike it because of its faint sake aroma, rustic anko (sweet red bean paste) and small taste.
