Momiji Monju KitKat

I've never heard of Japanese sweet Momiji Monju, a traditional treat originating from the island of Itsukushima in Hiroshima. It's shaped like a beautiful Japanese maple leaf, a sweet cake comprised of buckwheat and rice and filled with sweet red bean paste. It sounds delicious and I'd love to try one. I'm not sure how reminiscent the candy bar is of the original sweet. I could taste the flavor of red bean paste mixed in with the white chocolate, which was tasty, and would like to read a review from someone who is well-versed in traditional Mimiji Monju. Fun to eat!
