Shiogama is a snack made by a Buddhist temple in Sendai (featured in our May’16 Sendai Box). Each piece is carefully handmade using the original recipe and techniques passed down since 1600. The outer layer is made with a mixture of finely milled, locally produced rice from Miyagi, shiso (Japanese mint) from Sendai, and premium sugar from Tokushima. The inside is filled with lightly salted Azuki red bean paste. This snack is a favorite of Japan’s royal family!
