When you visit Fushimi Inari, it is not unusual to find the locals visiting the place only to have Futaba's "Mame Daifuku" (daifuku mochi rice cake with bean paste). As it is one of the most popular Japanese sweets around the area, it is almost like a cliche to visit here after the shrine and the restaurants to have the famous roasted sparrows and quails. The "mame daifuku" in Futaba is as tender as the marshmallows. The sweet bean paste inside that contains little bit of salt well balanced with its crunchy peas is just superb. It is definitely something that is worth to try since you are in Fushimi Inari!
