Like an ice... so beautiful... Do you believe that this is a kind of rice cake ? The name is Kuzu-mochi . It is made with just starchy kuzu powder*, sugar and water. * Kuzu powder= a natural and unprocessed powder extracted from the kuzu plants Although this Kuzu-mochi includes Anko (sweet beans paste), sometimes it is eaten with Kinako(soy powder) or brown sugar syrup. Kuzu-mochi is a one of the Japanese cold sweets. Enjoy the taste and looks !

Even Japanese, almost of all, has no experience eating it, because this rice cake is a specialty of specific region Matsu-no-yama in Nigata prefecture. If you go there, you can eat it. Open the package. Shinko Mochi is wrapped with a bamboo leaf of imitation. Commonly, rice cake doesn't include anything the inside, but this rice cake includes sweet beans paste(Anko). The taste is soft and nice. If you can visit in Matsu-no-yama in Nigata prefecture, please try to eat this specialty rice cake, Shinko Mochi !
