Founded in 1681, this venerable shop dedicated to castella, a Nagasaki specialty, located in Nagasaki City, Nagasaki Prefecture. Using no mechanization of any kind, one master is in charge of each of the shop’s 12 ovens, keeping the tradition alive of doing everything, from preparing the dough to the baking, by hand. Made with just eggs, flour, sugar, and starch syrup, the shop’s simple and delicate castella are so popular they have become a staple Nagasaki souvenir. Visitors can enjoy the shop’s vaunted castella as well as Western sweets in a retro atmosphere in the café on the second floor.

          This hidden corner of the country is rural Japan at its best, where underground activity is to thank for active volcanoes and bubbling natural hot springs along the Shimabara Peninsula as well as the crystal clear waters of the Goto Islands off the west coast. Less well known than Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, Nagasaki commemorates its own past at the Nagasaki Peace Park, which sits alongside the charming Meganebashi stone bridge and a mix of religious buildings with beautiful architecture, such as the Zen Buddhist Sofukuji Temple, the Confucian Shrine, and the Oura Christian Church.
