Hey everyone! It's been quite a while hasn't it! Welcome back to “eat like your anime faves,” a series where we teach you just how to eat like characters do in anime. That’s right; you learn how to cook real Japanese food from anime. We're back at it again to give you more of what you love!
Spring season has finally made its way to Japan, with the cherry blossoms blooming and the sun beaming with energy. We thought it would be great to provide you with some very eye catching and mouthwatering dishes that are very popular with everyone! Dango is an extremely popular snack among many, and due to its simple method of cooking it's very common to see it almost everywhere in Japan. Dango can come in various flavors, which can range from very sweet, to having a more distinct taste depending on the season. In spring, the more famous Hanami Dango (Pink,white, and green color) is seen frequently around most dango shops around Japan. Now that you have a little bit of information pertaining to dango, let us learn how to prepare and make our own!
