    This confectionery has been producing its Nichigetsu-Monaka sweets since its establishment in 1916. Otebo beans from Hokkaido are cooked low and slow with high-quality sugar to make glossy white bean paste, and filled in a crisp wafer made from sticky rice.
    The unique wafer will never break into pieces when you hold it or bite it.
    The confectionery continuously strives to break the mold and set new standards for monaka.
    The word “Nichigetsu” printed on the surface of the wafers comes from the flag of Asuke Shigenori, who participated in an anti-shogunate movement lead by Emperor Go-Daigo during the Genko Rebellion in 1331, and also fought as a commander in the Battle of Kasagiyama.
    The monaka has been a well-loved local specialty of Asuke for over a hundred years.
