Another way of enjoying cherry-blossoms
Though cherry-blossoms in Tokyo already fell, the blossoms in Tohoku region will be at their best soon.
But we can still enjoy cherry-blossoms in Tokyo. With sweets.
Now we can enjoy sweets that have cherry tree leaves and cherry-blossoms, and cherry-blossom-shaped confectionery, not to mention sakuramochi.
I ate Sakura anmitsu (桜あんみつ, 630 yen) at Kanten-papa cafe in Hatsudai the other day.
The glass in the center had cherry-blossoms syrup. A petal floated.
I put it over the anmitsu just before eating. The tea was cherry-blossom tea 🙂
It smell cherry-blossoms a little. The cherry-blossom-flavored ice cream was tasty.
This cafe was managed by “Kantenpapa” that is a campany in Nagano. They produce many foods made from agar.
“Kanten” means agar in English.
This anmitsu have gelee and square jelly made from agar. It was really good.
