I was in Ikeda recently and stopped at the Chikujian counter located near the ticket machines. Chikujian is a Kyoto sweets shop whose main shop is in Arashiyama.
They had an interesting looking sweet called kaki daifuku, a soft mochi wrapped around persimmon puree and sweet white bean paste.
It looked just like a persimmon, and even had a dried stem on top to make it look realistic. It tasted a little sweeter than the actual fruit, but it was delicious.
I also got a kuri daifuku, this is sweet azuki bean paste with a chestnut in the middle.
Both were 189 yen each (about US$1.89) and a nice afternoon snack.
