Abekawa Rice Cake

About

This is a famous confectionary of Shizuoka which consists of small pieces of rice cake of one bite size coated with soybean powder and sugar. In medieval era of Japan, the dessert was sold along a river Abekawa, and it was presented to Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu who happened to visit. At that time, the cake was mentioned as “a rice cake with soybean powder which represents gold dust produced upstream in Abekawa”, then the shogun liked the name very much and he officially asked to name it as “Abekawa rice cake”. Nearby a bridge called “Abekawa Bridge” located along former Tokaido Highway, there are three rice cake shops. You can enjoy an old-fashioned way of eating freshly made rice cakes and having green tea there. You can also buy an upgraded version called “Premium Abekawa rice cake” in a box of paulownia wood, which is certified as one of “Shizuoka Aoi Premium” souvenirs recommended by Shizuoka City.
