Oame-hompo Kikyoya (翁飴本舗・桔梗屋)

3.0

Japanese Confectionery

Founded in 1592 as a shop that produced manju steamed buns this famous confectioner makes the Oame sweet, a traditional classic treat that is synonymous with Noshiro. The Oame treat is made with mochi rice and barley and they are still stubbornly making it using the same techniques as when it was created in 1812. When the area was still a fiefdom the Lord Satake would place an order for them every year and they have won eight prizes at the National Sweets Exhibition which is held every four years.

Review of Kikiyoya Okina Ame Hompo

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/03/04 創業文禄年間!安土桃山時代…の超老舗和菓子店
創業文禄年間。秋田県内でこの古さはなかなかないのでは? 創業を数字に直すと400年を軽く超えます。伝統の名品は古典銘菓?翁飴。こちらは200年を超える歴史があります。地元では有名なのでしょう。店構えも格式を感じますが、その翁飴がどういうものなのか、扉を開けて入店しないと判明しません。店頭に写真1枚飾っておけばいいだけの話です。旅行者は「へえ、古そうなお菓子屋さん…」で通り過ぎてしまう可能性大です...

          Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
