WHAT IS MANJU
A manju is one of the wildly popular Japanese confectionaries in Japan. It’s one of the most common sweet, available both on street vendors and diners.
According to my research, manju originated from China and is called Mantou- Chinese have derived the recipe for their mantou from a type of pounded rice cake.
It was when a Japanese envoy brought back mantou from China in 1341 and started selling it as Nara-Manju, and became rumored earliest record which started the distribution of Manju in Japan, and also the reason of its name today.
