Ooo, looky, looky, a new kind of manjū! Why didn’t anybody ever think of this before? Gooey sweet mochi folded around fresh strawberries and chocolate! Yu-u-u-u-u-u-u-m!
Oh no! Aieeee!
How long have I been living here? I can’t believe I made this mistake again.
Not strawberries and chocolate. Strawberries and red bean.
Jonelle Patrick writes novels set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
