    Saga Karatsu-shi Honmachi 1513-17
    A historic Japanese sweet shop founded in 1850. Round Shoro Manju buns are Karatsu's signature sweet. Carefully baked one by one on copper plates, you'll love the hand-made flavor that has not changed since the shop's founding. We also recommend their Matsura with a mixture of white azuki and tebo beans, as well as their Shoroji; it's made by blending white azuki beans with carefully selected koshian bean paste and letting the mixture solidify in a mold.

    有田町はどこもかしこも年末年始は休んでて、お茶する場所も無く困りました。 このお店は有田駅から少し歩きますが、店内でケーキもコーヒーもいただけるので助かりました。 モンブランを食べましたが、味は美味しいけど特筆するほどではない。しかし提供された器が素敵でした。有田ならではなので、立ち寄って見るのもいいかも。 店内で手作りらしき布製品も置いてあったのが地元感いっぱいでちょっと苦笑してしまいました。

    Saga Nishimatsuura-gun Aritacho Honmachi Hei 1525
    Arita's water quality is so high that sake brewers go to great lengths to seek it out. This tofu shop uses it to make godofu, a local Arita specialty. The local favorite Takahashi no Godofu is made from nothing but 100% Saga Prefecture grown Fukuyutaka soybeans and Hokkaido potato starch. Some days it sells out by noon, so it's a good idea to stop in early.

Saga Areas

around-area-map

Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu's Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
