wagashi 2012 spring 13

Nakanishi Wagashi is located in Naramachi of Nara.  I visited on April 24 afternoon.  Hanatachibana is inspired by the legendary Seasonless Fragrant Fruit (Tokijikunokakunokonomi) in far away land recorded in Kojiki.  It is a combination of dried rice powder, sugar and sour taste of Yuzu.  Will we get eternal life after eating?  The taste is heavenly.
I also had macha and namagashi there.  It is a nice place, to have tea and rest a little after going to the sites such as Todaiji and Kasuga Taisha.
