Lucky blossoms

The Yomiuri Shimbun

The Yomiuri ShimbunWorkers at a confectionery in Kanazawa make fukuume monaka (bean jam-filled wafers) for the New Year. Fukuume monaka come in red and white, and are modeled after the plum-flower crest of the Maeda clan, which ruled the Kaga domain during the Edo period (1603-1867). The sweets are an essential element of New Year’s in Kanazawa.Speech
