Mmmm! Manju! We have manju in California. I have to go to Japantown to get it. It’s one of the oldest Japanese confectionery shops in San Francisco dating back to the early 1900s. It’s still there. They make a fresh strawberry manju which is hard to get since they sell fast and is only in season. They have a peanut butter manju which is different. I haven’t tried it yet. BUT I still think the manju in Japan is still the best.
