    Demachi Futaba

    Demachi area’s famous tasty rice cake

    Deamchi Futaba is a small yet very popular Japanese sweet shop founded in 1899.  There is always a queue in front of the shop consisting of those customers who come to purchase their signature item, “Myodai Mamemochi (170 yen per piece).”  This is a sweet dumpling in which a thin, soft sheet of rice cake wraps around a small ball of sweet and smooth red bean (from Tokachi, Hokkaido) paste containing cooked black beans.  The softness of the rice cake, sweetness of red bean paste and slight saltiness of black bean achieves perfect harmony.  If you are not a sweet lover, it is worth trying their plain rice cake only with black beans.
