Introduced by Mr. Kamatari
I believe all lovers of rice sweets cannot help craving them.
It is steamed sweets with smooth sweeten red beans covered by waxy rice putting chunk of rice colored yellow by Kuchinasi flower around.
I would rather describe it Mochi before pound instead Manjyu.
It is 7-8cm of diameter and round shape.
It is always the best way to eat right after it was just steamed there. However, it's also enjoyable to chew the manjyu little by little due to harder and harder after left it for a while. Of course it becomes tender again when you re-steam it. It has really graceful taste even though 'Egara' named after 'Iga'(spiky chest nut shell).
The shop is located on the corner of Asaichi Street. If you have chance to visit them, I would recommend that you order very fresh one, so tasty.

饅頭処 つかもと/Tukamoto

朝市名物「えがらまんじゅう」 あざやかな黄色は、クチナシの花の実の成分で色付けしたもの。天然素材だから安心。ツブツブしているのはモチ米。その中にこし餡。米ツブの食感と、モチのカオ、そしてやさしい甘さのアンコが絶妙のハーモニー。蒸したてをその日にうちに食べるのが一番ですが、冷凍庫で保存して、温めなおしても十分美味。

Description of Egara manjyu:
Very brilliant yellow color of "Egara manjyu" is made from all natural, Kuchinasi flower. Chunky touch comes from waxy rice stuffed smooth red beans inside.
It is a perfect harmony of unique texture, the figure itself and mild tender sweetness of red beans.
The most delicious way to taste it, I recommend you to eat it right after you bought. However, it is still delicious even re-steamed after you put them in a freezer for a while.
