This is the green rice cake stuffed with red bean jam. If you are lucky, you may be able to enjoy it. There are many kinds of herbs in Japan, too. Yomogi - mugwort is one of them. Yomogi herbs are used in many ways like cooking, coloring the cloths, and as medicines for internal and external use. It is used in this rice cake, too. Usually we make it without herbs though we do in the spring the season of this herb to enjoy the fresh herbs. The colour is beautiful green and it has a faint aroma of Yomogi. When I was a child, I went to pick them at the river side with family in the season and then we enjoyed making sweets and the spring season.
