At first, I thought it was Ryoguchiya Korekiyo (the Nagoya people laughed at me), but when I searched for it on the Internet, all that came up was Ryoguchiya-Korekiyo. And Ryoguchiya-Korekiyo is a long-established sweets shop in Nagoya that has been around since the beginning of the Edo period, and it's famous for having its sweets in major department stores across the country.

So, what I'm eating is a combination of famous sweets...

"Shina-no-ro" (top left of the image)
There is a lot of dry red bean jam in the thin skin. No, it's quite good.

The "travel sleeper" (bottom of the image)
A long, thin, "OYAKI"-like figure. The inside is still azuki bean paste, and the flavors of crunchy sugar and sesame seeds appear.

Yomoyama (the round one in the middle of the image).
He is round, but if you look closely, he has a pentagonal appearance. The inside is a starchy azuki bean paste that shines like starch.

"Wochikochi" (top right box in the image).
This is an elaborate five-layered sweets with a "Sao Mono" structure. What is this? It looks like yokan but not yokan, it's like "kintsuba".

Overall, it tastes like an old-fashioned tea cake or dagashi, or maybe it should be called a Showa era candy. To put it simply and easily, the bean jam inside is different, but it's also a Tokyo hiyoko type of sweets. Well, it's individuality in its own way, and there are people who want it.
