”Sakura mochi” is rice cake sweet with cherry blossom flavor. It is wrapped with a salted cherry leaf. Its aroma makes this sweet irresistible.
In spring, we, Japanese, look forward to seeing cherry blossoms blooming. The weather forecast updates the expected bloom date of cherry blossoms every day.
So, this Japanese sweet is a sort of symbol of spring in Japan.
It is like a small crepe that has bean-paste in the center. It goes well with green tea.
