Bunmeido Sohonten文明堂 総本店

Other Food

A venerable castella cake shop founded in 1900. Using such exclusive ingredients as Nanban eggs, laid by hens fed on natural fodder and herbs, and select rice syrup, the shop’s uniquely prepared castella cakes have an elegant flavor. The main shop’s small indoor garden space is also a must-see. Just around one tatami mat in size, the contents of the garden change monthly, reflecting the four seasons of Miyazaki. A one-minute walk from Nagasaki Electric Tramway Ohato Station.

          Nagasaki Areas


          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.
