Sweet treat for yourself

Until I had one of these deep fried momiji manju, I did not believe this could be delicious. These flew way above my expectation. They have custard, and cheese flavours. Basically it is made with kind of dough like donuts and cheese or custard inside. I personally do not eat manju which has sweet... read more

Nice place to visit on the way up Mt Misen. Lots of great photos opportunities and memories. The park links to a number of other nature trails and is close to town.

I hesitated getting one of these at first, I couldn't quite wrap my head round fried/sweet flavours. But I got one, then returned for a second! Each costs 180 yen, I got cheese the first time and then custard the second time - an English menu is very handy. Both were great. There's plenty of space to sit inside or... More

Stopped in for a taste of this popular treat which is liked a deep fried funnel cake or donut stuffed with cheese. And while tasty these need to be eaten warm and frankly were greasy. I thought they were pretty average in taste and texture and to be frank expected more given the hype this place gets. I would not... More

this place has a frying station that you can see from the street and there's partitions to form a line. You have three options for filling and each one costs 180 yen. So basically you get in line, Pay your fare and tell them how many and which fillings you want. If you want more than one, they'll give them... More

This place is always crowded for a reason; it specializes in deep fried momiji manju, which are delicious. You can pick one of three fillings, including custard or cheese, and then your order is made fresh while you wait. Both fillings are delicious, although I was partial to the custard. There are places to sit inside while you eat and... More

Had a few other places, none compared to this. Hand made while you wait, piping hot when you receive it! If there is a line, it is worth the wait. You can only get this type on Miyajima Island, and this place does it the best! Clean restaurant and helpful staff!!
