  • All right, let me show you this wonderful place after you get off Narita station.

  • There's an 800 metre long, remote sandy shopping street Sando for short that leads directly to Narita san Shinsho Ji Temple which dates back more than 1000 years.

  • This area flourished during the Edo period and you can still see some of the influence today.

  • They're even japanese zodiac statues throughout the street to help remind you uh what you're, you're born number one Hayashida, no assembly.

  • So if you've ever wanted december, but on a stick then this place has you covered.

  • Let me show you this first spot is located just before the hill starts to slope down to the temple.

  • It's the oldest of rice cracker shop in all of Narita and is the only shop that makes rice crackers from their own batteries.

  • This is a negi miso samba, basically it is like a rice cracker on a stick.

  • They just dip this straight into the mess so they put some nog which is onions and you eat it just like that.

  • Let me take a bite.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh, the symbol itself has really soaked in all of that miso flavor.

  • And you get like a strong miso punch because this is kind of like a very constant traded me.

  • So it feels like because everything has been sucked into the samba.

  • Our onions are a nice touch as well.

  • And what's interesting is that you expect this to be really savory and salty, which it is.

  • But you also do get a lot of that sweetness coming from the miso.

  • So it has a really interesting flavor.

  • Very, very unique and very, very japanese mm Usually sunday is like really dry and crispy.

  • This is still crispy, but you do get a little bit of the softness because it's been recently dipped in me.

  • So so it's softer than normal.

  • And if you touch it it's really, really sticky kind of also like it on the stick because your hands don't get so sticky.

  • You can see that it has the onions on here and it's not falling off.

  • Yes, some of it is falling up.

  • So I love this place.

  • You really feel like you're walking in the Edo period.

  • You can just see how historic a lot of these buildings are.

  • They make their being paste fresh every day.

  • Just like you know how someone's grandma made.

  • Oh it has that like pancake smell.

  • You can see that.

  • It's like still moist wow.

  • Initially it has a kind of like a mellow sweetness and then after a few seconds it just starts to get sweeter and sweeter.

  • Mm If you look at the texture of this Uncle is not really really mashed up and fine and silky.

  • Like you can still see like little pieces of bean.

  • It's called the symbol on.

  • It's kind of like very much like cream and the outer shell is very much pancake like but it's a little bit crispier on the outside.

  • It's like really, really firm, almost like has a crispy nous to it, but then on the inside it's really doughy.
