6 Reviews
Japanese Confectionery

A long-standing Japanese sweet shop founded in 1932. Its main shop is at the entrance to Esashi's Kuramachi Mall. They're dedicated to making sweets people love with a focus on safety, delicious flavor, and traditional hand craftsmanship. Their popular Iwayado yokan (sweet bean paste jelly) confection is wrapped in a bamboo leaf after solidifying in a rectangular wooden frame. Its traditional manufacturing method has been handed down in this region for nearly two hundred years. There are many other products that make great souvenirs too, such as their Mutsu-no-oja (their own version of a walnut tart from Switzerland's Engadin region) and their Fujiwara Yondai (pie-style manju buns).

Review of Kashi Dokoro Kikushodo

Reviewed:2019/10/28 お勧めは田舎羊羹
洋菓子と、和菓子のお店です。竹の皮に包まれた周りが硬い田舎羊羹は味わい深くとても美味しいです。あまり売店で売られていないので、江刺に行くと必ず立ち寄ります。
Reviewed:2019/03/24 回進堂ではありません
口コミを見ると回進堂と間違えているのかな?と思うものがありました。こちらは、お菓子屋(ケーキ屋)さんです。オススメは、春先にしかない桜餅。甘さ控えめで、桜の香りがとても良いです。あと、チーズどら焼き。チーズケーキの和菓子版という感じです。
Reviewed:2018/10/24 絶品の黒煉羊羹
両親の故郷が江刺なので、子供の頃から菊正堂の羊羹を食べていました。特に美味しいのは黒煉です。今では銀座の銀河プラザで買うこともできます。

          around-area-map

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
