This is Yomogi Dango covered with red bean paste. (yomogi: a Japanese mugwort)
(balls of rice-flour dough on a bomboo stick)
It looks like green tea Dango.
The rich yomogi grass scent makes me feel wrapped in nature.
I have one more Dango for incase…. greedy… I wanted to try both 🙂
The other one is Mitarashi Dango. Mitarashi glazed syrup is made from Soy source with sugar.(bit sweet)
I think this taste is the most popular among Japanese.
There is an another meaning of this word ” Mitarashi “. .
is 御手洗（みたらし), a holy washing trough / a lavabo.
You can buy anywhere in Japan but you’d better buy at a speciality store or any Japanese cafe called Chaya.(茶屋)
Dango which is selling at the supermarket is sweet taste to keep for a long time.
