Nowadays, many overseas sweet shops have landed in Japan, and due to the influence of SNS, such as posting on instagram, the Japanese traditional sweets also started to do model changes and continue to evolve new products. This time, I will introduce Japanese sweets that is perfect to post on instagram!


Odango: Shirokane Honki Dango

At first, I want to introduced is Odango. The foods that is a shape of rounded ball is called "○ ○ dango (dumpling)", but in general, it refers to Japanese sweets. It is a sweet adding water or hot water to the grain powder and make it rounded. The Dango on a stick is called, “Kushi Dango”, and the standard taste is Mitarashi and red beans. Besides that flavor, there is Kusa Dango and Hanami Dango etc..*Mitarashi is a sweet soy sauce.

This time, I would like to introduce a specialty shop,”Shirogane Honki Dango.” It is the shop specializing in Dango using "Brown rice" attracting attention from the world! At here, you can eat Dango made from brown rice rich in dietary fiber, which is said to be "complete nutrition food" using 100% of brown rice of Koshihikari from South Uonuma.


At here, you can choose it from sweet to salty brown rice Dango, so there is a menu for those who do not prefer sweet flavors!

You can find it from the popular standard flavors: Mitarashi, Isobeyaki, red bean paste (chunky or smooth) to rare items: chocolate granola, Sichuan style hot crispy, and cheese walnut miso etc. Also, because there are wide variation of taste, it is interesting and perfect for souvenirs to have it on that day.


The grilled Odango looks so yummy!!

In addition, the strawberry they are using is strawberries raised carefully in "Otofuke-cho, Tokatsu, Hokkaido.” "Ginryu Strawberry" have "Sweetness" "Fragrant", and "Moderate sourness."
