ANKO あんこ is a sweet red bean paste.
There are many kinds of ANKO sweets in Japan.
One of them is OHAGI おはぎ which is sticky rice covered with ANKO.
However, sticky rice is often used for rice cakes. The inside of OHAGI おはぎ is not rice cake. It is more like very soft sticky rice.
You can probably find OHAGI おはぎ at supermarkets or Japanese-style confection stores in Japan.
Give it a try!
