Favorite thing: the japanese has lots of yummy sweet treats from their cuisine and the Manju is one of them and it is a kind traditional steamed sweet cake that is very popular all over japan that every region and town has it's own recipe and fillings for this sweet icon! Manju is a Japanese steamed cake, and it's a traditional Japanese sweet. A variety of fillings are used in manju. The most popular filling is anko (or sweet azuki bean paste) and green tea (macha) and roast pork but there are also other fillings. They come in different varieties and packagings (korea an china have their own versions of the Manju). A big one piece manju costs about 90 yen and the 2 dozen small ones costs 800 yen and they are available everywhere.
