Ogaki has been blessed with rich groundwater from ancient times and is called the "city of water". The specialty created with this fine water around the end of the Edo period and early Meiji period is called "Mizumanju". This is an unbaked Japanese sweet, made with bean paste wrapped in kuzu starch and cooled with water. It has a distinct smooth, slippery texture, pleasant to the tongue. The scene of them on display in water is cooling to the eye, and has long been a summer tradition.
