It’s hard to avoid Hiroshima’s signature treat, that dense, stuffed, maple-leaf-shaped cake known as momiji manju. The typical stuffings include red bean paste, custard creme, matcha and chocolate. Some places offer cheese fillings, but that’s about it. However, Daishindo’s claim to fame in the world of momiji manju is their stunning variety of fillings. In addition to the above, you can find flavors like Ramune, cafe latte, strawberry milk, black sesame, cherry tree leaves, caramel, and beni-imo — a variety of purple sweet potato found in Okinawa. And they keep making new flavors. Currently, their menu lists more than 20 flavors described in both Japanese and English. A single manju will set you back 90 yen, but you’ll easily pay over 120 yen per cake elsewhere.
