    Kagawa Pref. Zentsujishi Zentsujichou 3-4-11
    Kumaoka Kashiten is a retro-style traditional Japanese confectionery store. It sells Ishi-pan (“Stone Bread”) biscuits, which are reputed to be the hardest type of traditional confectionery in Japan. Ishi-pan was originally made as emergency rations for soldiers in wartime, as it keeps for a long time. Despite the fact that no drying agents or preservatives are used in the process of making them, they keep for around a month before going off; Ishi-pan became famous throughout Japan for how well it kept. Ishi-pan is much harder than ordinary hardtack biscuits, so much so that young children and senior citizens may find it impossible to chew. Ishi-pan has a slightly sweet flavor, with a hint of ginger.

    善通寺と言えば、このお店の名物、硬くて噛めないほど固い堅パンが思い出されるほど、有名なお店です。西側境内から、東側の境内まで行く間の通り沿いにあるお店ですが、休日ともなれば、行列が出来ているほど、人が集まっていますので、すぐにわかります。

Kagawa Areas

around-area-map

Japan’s smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone’s throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa’s prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country’s best gardens.
