This Japanese confectionery is located in Oharai Town, Ise City, Mie Prefecture, which is near Naiku, Ise-jingu Shrine. It is a longstanding shop that has been around since 1868, the beginning of the Meiji period. Its most famous item since its opening has been the “Rikyu manju,” which was created for a tea ceremony exhibition held at Ise-jingu Shrine attended by the master of the Senke school of tea ceremony. Smooth bean paste is wrapped in a thin layer to create a manju bun with a light sweetness. The Rikyu manju is popular as a “kohaku (red and white) manju” for celebrations as well. The shop also offers “Moritake no Matsu,” which consists of dough kneaded with brown sugar and baked, as well as seasonal cakes and other sweets.

Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
