The food I will introduce is yomogi-mochi of the famous Nakadanodo in Nara.
[ The rice cake shop named Naketanido ]
It rains today.
The temperature is low, it feels a little chilly rather than cool.
People with umbrella are crowded over there.
It is in front of Nakatanido.
Nakatanido is a rice cake shop and they are famous for making rice cake so fast.
It is said that its speed is the fastest in Japan.
The scene that they are pounding steamed rice to make rice cake has been on air on the TV many times so far.
I think that they are pounding rice ,or they have pounded rice now.
Because people are gathered all the time at such times.
[ Rice cake called yomogi-mochi ]
Rice cake is my favorite food.
And many Japanese like mochi,too.
Today, I bought 3 rice cakes at this shop.
a rice cakes is normally white.
However, a rice cake of this shop is green itself.
This is a rice cake called yomogi-mochi.
Because they pound (glutinous) rice with herbs called yomogi.
There is brown powder around the rice cake.
This brown powder is called kinako, made from soybeans.
There is sweet red bean paste in the rice cake.
The Nakatanido is at the corner from Nijyo-dori street to Mochiidono-shotengai street.
