Japanese Confectionery

A Japanese confectionary shop located near Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, a Shinto shrine dedicated to scholarly pursuits. A venerable shop founded in the Edo period, the current owner is the shop’s 12th. The shop’s famed awa mochi millet rice cakes are made fresh with just-roasted foxtail millet pounded and mixed with mochi which is then covered with koshian strained sweet bean paste and kinako roasted soybean flour. Takeout is available but patrons can also enjoy freshly pounded foxtail millet in the shop as well.

          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.
