Kyo Kashiwazaki Kohzuki will be selling its very popular "Baked Mitarashi Dango" at the Gion Festival, one of the three major festivals in Japan, on July 15 and 16, limited to 1,500 each day.At the 2019 Gion Festival, this very popular product sold out two hours before the festival ended, out of the planned number.
Freshly baked Mitarashi dumplingsThis year, for the first time in three years, Kohzuki's Mitarashi Dumplings have been redesigned in size so that customers can enjoy them even more. The "sauce" for the Mitarashi dumplings is made in-house by artisans who prepare and make the dumplings by hand, using a special recipe that has remained unchanged in taste from generation to generation. The use of Okinawan brown sugar adds not only soy sauce spiciness but also a mild sweetness, giving it a deep "rich" flavor. The sauce is easy to mix and enjoy Mitarashi dumplings from beginning to end.
At Kohzuki, each dumpling is baked on the spot by hand, with each baked dumpling checked for doneness. The dumplings are soft and fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside, and the slightly charred dumplings give the dumplings a wonderful combination of aroma and flavor with Kohzuki's special sauce.
