Uirou (ういろう)

4.0

Other Food

Located along Tokaido Road in 1-Chome, Honcho, Odawara City, this established shop “Uiro” deals in pharmaceuticals and sweets while residing in a building that looks like castle. It began in the Muromachi period, when the Uiro family immigrated from China, bringing along their family secrets in medicinal work and receiving praise for the steamed confection made of rice powder they proposed for offering to country visitors. It became known as “uiro” for the family name and spread to many areas. This genuine “uiro” from the original family has been kept for 25 generations as a tradition, with its characteristic spongy texture and gentle sweetness. The uiro museum which uses the family storehouse built in 1885 features exhibits of products in which you can sense the craftsman spirit and learn the relationship to “uiro uri” of kabuki (free entrance, guides available.) There is also a sweets shop where you can enjoy handmade Japanese confections.

こちらの蔵[明治18年(1885)築]を利用した[外郎博物館]を見学後、喫茶部で《琥珀のしずく(わらび餅)600円税抜 添付 写真参照》を楽しみました。 名前の通り [琥珀色]の[とろり]とした(わらび餅)を楽しめます。入口に《琥珀のしずく》と《春だより(自家製苺シャム入りムースに苺ソース)600円税抜》が掲示(添付 写真参照)してありましたので 近々 こちらを訪問予定で 苺好きな方は如何でしょ...

博物館入って右に併設されている喫茶室。
ここは小さいながらもなかなか雰囲気のいい店内なので行った時には必ず利用しています。
今回はこの季節ピッタリの「さくらさくら」を注文。
上層にほんのりピンクの桜ゼリー
中層に生クリームのムース
底の方には桜餡と、いろいろな食感が楽しめるなかなかの一品。
落ち着いた和風の店内でまったりと過ごすにはおすすめです。

小田原駅から歩くと20分はかかるので、箱根へバスで行きかえりするときに立ち寄るのがよいでしょう。(箱根口停留所)17時と早めの閉店で15時過ぎに来店したが、既に杏仁ういろうや小倉あんういろうは売り切れ状態。店内も客で一杯。栗入りと白あんと抹茶を購入して、一部は妻の実家へ宅配に。小田原城を模した外観も立派。併設する甘味処や隣接する中華料理店も行ってみたいが、今回はお土産購入だけで帰っていきました。

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
