Kameyamutsu亀屋陸奥

Other Food

This Japanese sweets shop located in the Shimogyo Ward of Kyoto City in Kyoto Prefecture is a long-established place that has taken part in offerings and various matters since around the time that Honganji Temple was built in the Yamashina area of Kyoto in 1483. Its representative famous sweet “Matsukaze” is said to have been created while Oda Nobunaga was fighting Ishiyama Hongan-ji Temple, a battle which continued for 11 years from 1570. Matsukaze, which is made by taking a blend of wheat flour, sugar, malt syrup, and light-brown miso, then fermenting it and grilling it in a circular pot, has a consistency and special flavor that is almost addictive and is a standard present among Kyoto souvenirs. They also carry many items for gifts such as gift cases.

ケシの実がたっぷり乗った「松島」を購入しました。味噌が使われているのですがみたらし団子を思い出す味。むちむちっとした歯ごたえに甘すぎないやさしい味でした。

          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.
