Someone told me that the most popular souvenir or hand-me-down souvenir of Odawara is the long-established Japanese confectionery shop "Nanohana", and I heard there was. The shop has been in operation for 30 years and is now a well-established presence in the area. They also have more than a dozen shops centered in Odawara, from Yokohama to Hakone. I heard that they have more than a dozen shops, mainly in Odawara and from Yokohama to Hakone, and this time I felt like I got the most recommendation out of their many products, "Tsukino. I was going to have a "Usagi".

When I opened the paper box with the picture on it, it looked pretty ordinary inside. Well, this one is a set of "Tsukino-Usagi" and "Black Rabbit of the Moon".

The first thing that caught my eye was the black man (black rabbit of the moon). As soon as I put it in my mouth, the smell of the wheat paste wafted from the outside of the bun, and when I bit into it, the outer skin of the bun fell apart. The first was the chewy texture, the second was the azuki bean paste, and the last was the chewy, silky sweet chestnut. I can enjoy three or four flavors in one bite, it's a strange manjuu. And what is worth mentioning is this "barley flour". Those who are familiar with it will find it nostalgic, and those who have never tried it before will find it refreshing.

When I read the description, I found out that it contains whole chestnuts with the astringent skin (I ate a second one later, and I found out that the astringent skin of this (You can feel the astringency, and that's what makes it so delicious). Oh, yes, as you can see, this one, as you can see, when you open the bag, you're sure to see black powder dust flying off. No matter what kind of hand-technique...

Next, let's try some Tsukino-Usagi. Hm? This one doesn't seem to be sprinkled with barley flour (but the description says it's used). The rest of the ingredients seem to be the same as for the black man, but this one doesn't seem to have any skin on it. If you eat it on its own, it's good enough, but after the Kuro-man (black rabbit of the moon), it's not as good as the Kuro-man. I might do that.

To sum up, it's a pretty richly flavored and textured pastry, and one per person is enough to satisfy.
