  • Kurasanchi
    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Gunma Pref. Tomiokashi Tomioka 104-3
    A taiyaki stand a five minute walk from the main entrance of the Tomioka Silk Mill. Kurasanchi is famous for its kaikoyaki, a silkworm-shaped taiyaki sweet containing fillings such as custard and tsubuan coarse sweet bean paste. The chewy kaikomochi are also popular. Both are perfect for enjoying while going sightseeing. In addition, due to the strong association between threads and fate in Japan, the silkworm statue in front of the stand has been purified by the local Suwa-jinja Shrine to ensure it brings good luck. This cute statue is also rapidly becoming a popular commemorative photo spot.
