  Botchan Dango
by kiwigal_1

Botchan Dango is another famous product in the Ehime Region. Dango is three coloured dumplings on a stick. The Botchan Dango are named after the novel "Botchan" by Soseki Natsume (who happens to be the same guy featured on the 1000 yen note).

The dumplings contain sweet bean paste coloured by adzuki beans, eggs and powdered green tea in it.

A good place to find this local delicacy is the shopping area surrounding Dogo Hot Spring.
