A hike around town on a cold day requires a few stops for snacks and warming up.
Last month, Kaede and I hiked around town gathering stamps in our goshuincho. It was fairly chilly, so we stopped at the cafe at Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu.
Kaede went with Jagarico (a kind of stick-shaped potato chip, that, !!!, turns into potato salad if you add boiling water), but I went all out with the oshiruko set.
Oshiruko is a thick soup of very, very sweetened adzuki beans served with a grilled piece of mochi (glutinous rice cake). It was served with green tea, and a small side of fujikko (possibly a brand name), which is thinly cut kombu.
