Gokabo is characterized by its simple but elegant sweetness added to the fragrance of toasted soybean flour. Soka senbei, Kawagoe's imogashi, and gokabo are Saitama's three major snacks. Gokabo, a traditional snack that has been sold since the Edo period, is made from a glutinous rice cake dusted with toasted soybean flour. Gokabo, which is mainly made around the northern part of the prefecture, uses a unique, traditional manufacturing technique. Skilled confectioners produce their own types of gokabo that are different from each other in flavor. Try this traditional Japanese snack if you have a chance to visit Saitama.
