2010 – Iki-shi, Nagasaki-ken, Japan, Earth

03-21

Yum yum!After my brief discussion of sakura mochi in “yesterday’s” picture (<–clickable!), I decided that I wanted to eat some. And then I decided that I wanted to show them to you fine folks.  So that’s what I did.

The leaf is syrupy, and yes, it’s an actual cherry blossom tree leaf.  I believe that the pink of the rice is done with ground sakura blossoms, but I could be crazy, and it might just be food coloring.  Then the inside is “anko,” or red-bean paste.  One of my favorite Japanese sweets.  Behind the mochi is some pineapple.  I [heart] pineapple.

This was my post-dinner dessert, in case you were wondering.
