Momiji manju (maple leaf bean buns) have been Miyajima's most famous confectionary for about a hundred years, and are known nationwide as one of the prefecture's most famous products. As the name suggests, they are castella cake buns in the shape of maple leaves, filled with sweet bean paste.
Here, you can try your hand at making your own maple leaf bean buns, experiencing the entire process from cooking the shell to filling it, under the guidance of an instructor.
To participate in the hands-on activities, you must have a group of five or more. Up to 40 people can be accommodated per session.
(Reservations can be made one year in advance but no later than one week before your visit.)
