    近くにあるのになかなか行けないケーキ屋さんです。 なぜなら駐車場がとても入りにくく通りすぎてしまうことがほとんどです。 運転が苦手な方は近場にコインパーキングがあるので駐車してから徒歩で行くのがオススメです。店内はかわいい!の一言!イートインスペースありますが、2〜3人の利用スペースしかありません。 常温保存とはいえ真夏は涼しいところに置かないと溶けそうです。

    Gentiane is located inside the central concourse of JR Nagoya Station. The “Piyorin” (chick pudding) made by the female pastry chef is a hit.

    It is known for its desserts, but I went for lunch. Well that is what I tried, but the only thing I could have was a very good sandwich instead a real lunch. It was good. I had to wait for a seat...

With the original shop logo pressed on the side they make for a great souvenir.

Aichi Main Areas

around-area-map

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
