    Osaka Osakashi Chuou-ku Namba 3-8-22
    This old popsicle specialist shop was established in 1945 in Chuo Ward, Osaka City, Osaka Prefecture. Initially set up after the war to provide foodstuffs to women and children in a time of scarcity, the popsicle has remained a much-loved famous Osaka food to this day. Each popsicle is made carefully by hand—with a strict process in terms of ingredients, production and even the stick—for that classic taste. In winter they also sell a penguin-marked kaiten-yaki (a round-shaped cake containing red bean paste).
