Renowned Kumamoto snacks and specialty products are sold on the first floor. The popular Kokuto Donut Bo brown sugar donut sticks are a best seller that has ranked in at number one for four periods running in a list of the most popular local items to give as small gifts. Made with choice domestic flour and Okinawan non-centrifugal brown sugar, they are crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, giving them an elegant texture. The mild sweetness of the brown sugar permeates all the way inside the dough, and the tasty treats have a light flavor one would never expect from a deep-fried confection. Other products the market sells include mustard filled lotus root, a popular standard; and ikinari dango cakes.

Kumamoto Areas

Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
