If you visit Yamaguchi, you need to try raw sweet rice jelly! Recommended for fans of Japanese sweets.
Sweet rice jelly is a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing wheat and flours with sugar and warm water, pouring the mix into a mould and steaming it in a wicker basket.
There are many stories about the origin of sweet rice jelly, but Yamaguchi's sweet rice jelly, known as "white sweet rice jelly," developed in Yamaguchi together with the Ouchi Culture of the ruling Ouchi family. It's said that the sweet was invented at a shop called Furuda-ya in the Ouchi Mihori area of Yamaguchi City.
The Mihori Company was founded in 1927 to continue and protect the traditional sweet-making methods of Furuda-ya, which it has continued to do for three generations. Try "raw sweet rice jelly," and have a taste of Ouchi Culture, which included elements of the culture of Kyoto.
