I bought "Tsubo Monaka" at Tsuboya Sohonten, which is a 5 or 6 minute walk from Hongo Sanchome Station. The price is 190 yen for koshian (tax included, same below), and 200 yen for grained bean paste.
This is in the shape of a jar. All are handmade using carefully selected materials.
First of all, from the bean paste. When you break it, you can see the shiny and shiny bean paste! It is viscous, rich and sweet, and you can enjoy the texture of beans properly.
It goes well with the fragrant light brown skin and is responsive to eating.
Koshian is also full of bean paste in every corner. You can enjoy a smooth texture with a relaxed and moist taste. It's a taste you'll want to eat with warm green tea.
"Monaka" of the historic Tsuboya Sohonten, which has been loved for over 300 years since its establishment. Why don't you check this taste, which is said to have been loved by Katsu Kaishu.
