Misogi dango (dumpling)

This traditional treat of Hashima City is prepared by skewering dango balls made of rice powder dough wrapping bean paste and baking the skewer with a sauce made of red miso paste and sugar. It has been believed that those who eat this dumpling at Shinto ritual called "Misogi (whereby defilement is purified and prayers are offered for health and safety)" in June every year would live the remaining half year in good health. This custom has been practiced since old times.
