A simple snack from the Edo Period which wraps the flavors of the season
A traditional food from Tsukui, Sagamihara born in the Edo Period which is made with seasonal local ingredients such as mountain vegetables and mushrooms in spring, wrapped with flour dough and grilled. “Kanko” is one of the drums used in Gagaku, and “Kankoyaki” was named after the drum because of the resemblance. Kankoyaki used to be a meal as a substitution for rice since the area was a mountainous region and not suitable for growing rice. However it has become a snack wrapping any ingredients at hand, and the local female group has been working on the promotion of Kankoyaki and creating new flavors as homemade traditional cooking.
