Shogoin Yatsuhashi Sohonten (聖護院八ッ橋総本店)

4.0

Japanese Confectionery

"Situated a short distance west of the Shogoin Temple, this is the main shop of a long-standing yatsuhashi cinnamon rice flour confections shop which was established in 1689. Using choice cinnamon, rice flour, and other select ingredients, the shop slightly changes the balance of ingredients used in its recipes depending on seasonal conditions to ensure its yatsuhashi always have the same great taste. The shop also still uses mixing kettles made in the early Showa period, continuing to make its treats the old fashioned way by hand. In addition to the standard ""Shogoin Yatsuhashi,"" the shop sells raw yatsuhashi and a variety of seasonal yatsuhashi flavors. The shop also makes and sells new products such as the ""Kaneru,"" yatsuhashi curled up into churro-like sticks."

聖護院は聖護院門跡が有る門前町です。
近隣には阿闍梨餅で有名な菓子屋も有ります。
1689年創業との事ですが、1805年創業の
井筒八橋が創業年で訴訟を起こしてます。
八ツ橋は生と焼いた物有ります。又従来から有る味はニッキです。
Reviewed:2019/12/06 京で八つ橋と言えば
京で八つ橋と言えば、聖護院さんです。門跡寺院の名前を取って、八つ橋総本店はお寺の近くに店を構えています。昔ながらの店構えで、大きな提灯や暖簾が目を引きます。焼かない生八つ橋も人気ですが、普通に「八つ橋」と言えば、焼いたものでしょう。

八ツ橋のウンチクをたくさん聞きました。
生と焼きは生地も水分量も違うこと。ニッキも違うこと。
焼きには生には入っていない実が入っていること。

粉ニッキの、原料状態の香りをかがせていただきましたが、気持ちがスーッと落ち着くような気持ちのいい香りでした♪

季節の限定八ツ橋があることは知られていると思いますが、桜の木型で形作られた八ツ橋が、京都本店のみ、扱われています。手作りなのだそうです。
日によ...

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
