These are traditional Japanese sweets using sweet azuki beans, brown sugar syrup and other ingredients. The most famous examples are anmitsu (agar jelly, bean paste and fruits) with ice cream, kakigoori (shaved ice) that is great at the height of summer, and warm oshiruko (sweet bean soup) that is wonderful during winter. You can drop by the sweets shops during tea time to sample them.
