  • Heiwado Main Shop
    Kagawa Shozu-gun Shodoshima Cho Noma Ko 1411-1
    This historic Japanese confectionery is said to be founded sometime during the Taisho period. This shop, with a distinctive exterior, which reminds one of bygone years, sells a large assortment of western and Japanese confections. The Shimamurasaki, a fine Japanese confection is one in which the highest grade of soy sauce, a specialty of Shodo Island, is added to the pastry dough enveloping a mildly sweet white bean paste, and has come to be one of the confections associated with Shodo Island. The popularity of this sweet, shaped into the shape of a brewing barrel, has not waned for many generations. Another sweet, which has become a popular item sold on the internet, is the Shodo Island Olive Castilla cake, in which olive leaf powder and olive oil is used. The Shodo Island Shoyu Castilla that has a faint aroma of soy sauce, and the Maiko Kiku confection, which sandwiches Hokkaido adzuki beans between western pound cake pieces, are beloved as well.

Kagawa Areas


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.
