    Shiga Pref. Oumihachimanshi Tamakichou 2-3
    A long-standing Japanese confectionary shop established in 1863 located in 2 Chome Tamaki-cho, Omihachiman City. The shop’s yokan jelly, made by steaming a bean jam wrapped in bamboo peels, was often bought as a souvenir by young apprentices after visiting home to give to their employers due to the reasonable price of these tasty sweets. Because the word for these apprentices is “decchi” in Japanese, the shop’s yokan jelly came to be called “decchi yokan,” and today decchi yokan is one of the Omi area’s most famous local confections. The shop still sells its “Decchi Yokan” made according to the same process as when it first opened its doors, as well as uiro-mochi sweet rice cakes and seasonal confections.

Shiga Main Areas

Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
