Miyajima Momiji Manju

This past weekend we went to Hiroshima and the nearby island of Itsukushima, which is popularly known as Miyajima, the Shrine Island. The island is well known for its maple trees, and the maple leaf shows up on a number of souvenirs, including these momiji manju which M picked up as omiyage for his coworkers.

They are pastries filled most often with adzuki bean paste, but come in a number of other flavors too, including the type we sampled, chocolate.
