It seems that every area in Japan has special foods and snacks. Besides green tea, I learned these snacks are a specialty of Shizuoka.
They are hard to describe, but I will try -- they are made from rice and are pink for sakura, with a sweet kind of glaze on the outside. This bag was a gift to me from stitchers. What a nice treat! (It's a good thing I ate them before going to the hospital because I can't eat them now.)
