Pretty manju

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I just love buying mochi and manju from Nijiya market.  Some of my previous posts can be found here, here and here.

It's been a while since I paid Nijiya a visit.  I've tried to stay away.  Usually Nijiya is on my list of grocery stops, but I started realizing that instead of buying ingredients to make meals for the week, I spent most of my money at Nijiya buying chips, mochi and other snacks.

So I stayed away as long as possible, but finally caved in this past weekend. While at Nijiya, I of course had to browse their mochi and manju selection.  I noticed they were now carrying a new set of manju made at the Hogetsu Bakery.

Here are some individual pictures:

This one is always my favorite design.  I love the simple flower, the colors, and the white ball peaking underneath.

This one above actually had a layer of rice flour at the bottom.

This last one reminds of me of a watermelon, though I guess the colors are reversed.

The mochi were purchased at Nijiya:

Nijiya's location:

However, they come from Hogetsu Bakery, where they are handmade:

I still have not visited Hogetsu.  It's on my list of places to go to though!
