  • During the Edo period (1603-1868), the Takamatsu clan encouraged the production of sugar as a special product to enrich their domain, and succeeded in producing white sugar called wasanbon. At the time, however, sweet things were a luxury item that common people could not afford to eat. It is said that "Anmochi Zoni", then, came to be the luxury food that everyone (not just those privileged individuals) could enjoy for the New Year. Daikon and carrots are sliced into rounds as a garnish, which is symbolic of the wish that the year safely comes to a close.
    “Anmochi Zoni" is a taste unique to Sanuki that cannot be found in other prefectures. The spicy miso paste and the sweet bean paste are a match made in heaven. While daikon and carrots are the most popular pairing to the miso and sweet bean paste, in some areas, taro, burdock root, fried tofu, and toppings such as green onions, aonori (green laver), and (dried) bonito flakes are also added.
