Customers can choose from five different flavors including soy-based glaze, salt flavor, and miso-based glaze. The bento boxes are both tasty and generously portioned. We strongly recommend giving it a try if you are in Donan."

    This is a Castella shop of long standing which was established in 1624. This Castella is characterized by its fluffy texture and the dough is made with carefully selected raw materials without using additives. The contrast with the texture of the granulated sugar laid on the bottom is also unique to the Fukusaya store. The current head office in Funadaiku Town was built in the early Meiji period. The charming store’s appearance also merits a visit. The nearest station is Shiambashi, a tram station.

    Of all the castella in Japan, Fukusayas castella, ranks top 1 on my list. But if you love chocolate+walnuts+raisins in a moisty, soft, fragrant cake, then the Hollander Cake is a must. When I went...
