When this site was first set up, I was looking for a souvenir of Osaka's speciality, and I immediately came across this "Tsurigane-Manjuu". So, this Tsurigane-Manjuu is a manjuu made in the likeness of the fishing bell of Shitennoji Temple, and it was widely recognized as a souvenir of visiting Shitennoji Temple and as a speciality of Osaka. In addition, if it was founded in 1893, we can't help but have high hopes for it.

Come to think of it, I don't remember the Osaka souvenirs I received in the past.

When I opened the box with "Osaka specialty" written on it, I found two washi (Japanese paper) wrappers. When I opened one of them, four Tsurigane-Manjuu were served from inside, and they exuded a slight, embarrassing sense of luxury.

And when we tried it, it was just like that pastry with koshi-an inside the castella-type dough. Yes, it is in the same category as Momiji Manju (Hiroshima) and Ningyo-yaki (Tokyo), and its shape is also shaped like a fishing bell. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't have expected too much before eating it. But it's not bad. After all, I love you~.
