Shiratama, a specialty of Sekijuku, has been loved by many travelers of the Tokaido road since the Edo period. Shiratama is a simple confectionery made of Hokkaido red beans and wrapped in a dough made of fresh flour. It has a light taste, using little sugar so you might feel safe eating as many as three or four! But be careful the clear and transparent dough is made of the same rice eaten daily in Japan so watch those carbs. The colors of the seasons are added to give the treat a fun appearance. Pick some up and take a walk around Sekijuku.
