The store also sells many other sweets including the Matsue specialty, wakakusa, and nishikiogura, made with yokan (adzuki-bean jelly) sandwiched between castella sponge.

    松平不昧公の命名したお菓子をつくる老舗のお店で、菜種の里という押し菓子はここのみ。近くの彩雲堂、風流堂の本店と比べるとかなりこじんまりし、和室やお庭などもありませんでした。

    Shimane Pref. Izumoshi Hiratachou 774
    Since it was founded in 1715, this long established store has been selling ginger flavored sweets using age-old recipes passed down from father to only one son. Using only shussai ginger with its small amount of fiber and unique sweetness and aroma, the old-fashioned ginger sweets, made by melting the juice and sugar together over a charcoal fire, produce a delicately fresh aroma and refreshing sweetness with a hint of ginger spiciness coming through. The store also sells sugar with powdered green tea, ginger tea and seasonal ginger sweets. The historical store building that was rebuilt from the ashes of the Great Fire in 1876 and then further refurbished in the early Heisei period is also one of the highlights. The nearest station is Unshu-Hirata Station.

Shimane Main Areas

around-area-map

What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
