"Tanaye" & "Club Harie"

These are special sweets "Taneya" designed for Children's Day this year. Aren't they pretty? Inside the paper boxes, they have several Chimaki, a cake wrapped in bamboo leaves, special sweets for Children's Day in Japan. Their mochi skin is so smooth and I bet you will be impressed with your first bite.

"Taneya" is my TOP1 Wagashi brand started in Shiga Prefecture, my home town where I grew up. They can be also found/bought in some of department stores in Tokyo these days. Having said that, I am happy to say the quality has not wavered. I always enjoy my time whenever I visit their shops as they have new attractive offerings that feature seasons of the year and their presentation skills are great. It makes me think they do have a group of great marketers to say nothing of skillful craftmen who have pride in their craftsmanship. I usually don't hesitate to throw away boxes and wrapping papers, but when it comes to Taneya's products, I feel like keeping them or even decorating the shelves with them. Of course, their taste is so good and I all rank it as among the best in Japan. Seriously I have never disappointed with their products. "Club Harie" is Taneya group's cake and pastry shop. They offer the most delicious baumkuchen in my opinion.
