Japanese Confectionery

A long-standing confectioner that first opened in 1882 and has been making confections that convey the charm of Kyoto ever since. They continue to make delicate Japanese confections that show the passing of the seasons in accordance with the 24 divisions of the luni-solar calendar year. Their most famous confection is their Juraku steamed bun, made with a unique flavored dough and stuffed with red-bean paste that was once solely for the Jurakudai palace, which has been made by Shioyoshiken since their founding. It has a gentle flavor with a moderate level of sweetness. Their treats, which also express the seasons through their shapes, colors, and imprints, are also a feast for your eyes.

Reviewed:2019/12/04 長い年月が育んだ伝統とバランス。老舗の風格です。
歴史を感じさせる立派なお店は晴明神社の近く。電車の駅からは少々歩きます。

店内も伝統的なつくり。陳列棚には主菓子、干菓子が綺麗に並べられています。

初めてなので、ご主人と相談して代表的なお菓子を買いました。正午を回ったくらいでしたが、一部は売切れ。予約した方が確実だと思います。

菊日和。白餡が入った餅菓子です。餅の薄さと餡の上品さが際立っています。茶道をしている義父が感心していました。

上生菓子が食べたくて、念のため前日に予約をしていきました。
7種類の上生菓子の中から4種類買いました。
きんとんやうぐいす餅、上用饅頭などどれも素晴らしいお味でした。
塩芳軒さんの名物「聚楽」も想像以上の美味しさで、大変すばらしかったです。
Reviewed:2019/02/07 雪まろげ と言うお菓子
和三盆の、上品なお菓子で、一粒1cmくらいの大きさで、口の中でゆっくり溶けるお菓子です。
写真ではわからないと思い、タバコを横に置き写真を撮りました。

タバコ2つ分くらいの大きさなので、お土産を買っても、嵩張らないのがとても嬉しいですよね!

          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.
