At Hatsugama, there are two kind of sweets are served. Sweet in the round tray is called hanabira-mochi, which has burdock root in it. Look at the picture. Something sticking out from the sweet is the burdock. It is special sweet for New Year. I don’t usually like it very much, but this year’s one was better. It was not that bad, I thought. Sweet on the square trey is higashi, dry confectionery
