Glutinous Rice Cakes

The name in English may not sound very good, but these sweets are really good. Inside there is atsuki, sweet bean paste. The white ones have chestmnuts on them. Both have real leaves. They are only for decoration. We don't eat them.

The red leaf is from a Japanese maple tree. I'm not sure where the green one came from. I think this next picture is the tree when the leaves are yellow. See the next post for pictures of a maple tree. Click on all pictures of the fall colors. They look better enlarged.
