Chiyoda Kuri-monaka Honpo

Secondly, I’ll introduce “monaka,” sweetened bean paste sandwiched in coated wafers. When it comes to monaka, we always think it is stuffed only with sweetened red bean paste. Chiyoda’s monaka is different. Their bean paste is mixed with chunks of sweetened chestnuts, called “kuri” in Japanese. So that’s why it is called “kuri-monaka.” It has been a popular and famous Chiyoda Kuri-monaka Honpo product and is also designated as a famous confectionery of Kanagawa. In addition, many stop by for them repeatedly.

The wafers are also good! You can enjoy the savory scent of the wafers as well as the crunchy texture. The scent spreads through the mouth as soon as you put it into your mouth. It is a good idea to taste each kind, red and white, one at a time.
