As most Japanese will immediately tell you, Japan is a very safe country – unless you count the risks posed by Mother Nature! Pretty much any natural disaster you can think of are alarmingly common in the Japanese islands, so how to be prepared is one of the things the Japanese start learning when at kindergarten. And because even when you evacuate, you need something to comfort you, there are items like the Izameshi Long-Life Kuromitsu Kinako Mochi!
Packed in a way that allows them to last three years, the Izameshi Long-Life Kuromitsu Kinako Mochi contains six mochi cakes made from steamed rice pounded into a paste. This particular type comes with a brown sugar syrup called kuromitsu and roasted soybean flour (kinako). All you do is open the pack, pour the kurmoitsu and the kinako on the mochi, and then enjoy a traditional Japanese dessert at home, at the beach, when hiking in the mountains, or even when staying at an evacuation center!
