Ichigo Daifuku – Japanese Sweets

Posted in Places, Shops, Stuff by tokyobling on July 12, 2012

This my friends, is my absolute favorite when it comes to Japanese traditional sweets. The Ichigo Daifuku (苺大福) is a strawberry inside sweet bean paste covered in a layer of powdered and pounded sweet sticky rice paste. It is much better than it sounds and even people who are usually not into red bean paste enjoy this one! There’s several other variants where instead of strawberry you have other sweets and fruits or even salt or coffee! But this is the best one. Found in a Ginza sweet shop. Expensive but well worth it.
