Japanese Confectionery

This yokan (sweet bean jelly) specialty shop is in Kushimoto Town, Higashimuro County, Wakayama Prefecture. It opened in 1900 and operated over four generations before closing down once. The current owner used recipes he found in his grandfather’s Buddhist altar to recreate the original taste. The shop’s flagship product is the “hon-neri yokan,” of which only 200 can be produced daily. Each one is carefully made using Hokkaido azuki beans and agar from Osaka. The shop was recently awarded first place at the Monde Selection competition. The surface is crispy and has a unique dry texture.

年配の人には懐かしいようで、
お土産で喜ばれます。
Reviewed:2018/09/03 甘さ控えめ羊羹
明治創業の羊羹屋。
職人が当時のレシピに忠実に一本一本手作りした羊羹は表面ぱりぱり。
道の駅でも売っているのを見かけました。
小包装の商品もあれば、嬉しいな。
商品は1本が竹皮に包まれていて、ギフトにもよく利用しています。
Reviewed:2018/08/22 羊羹の試食をいただけます
串本の橋杭岩の道の駅で、紅葉屋本舗の羊羹を購入したのが最初でした。
モンドセレクションを連続で受賞しているんだとか。
何度かTVでも紹介されていました。
無添加の手作り羊羹は、お上品な味で甘さ控えめ。
お土産にも最適です。

種類がいくつかあるので迷いますが、全種類の羊羹試食ができるので
じっくり選べますよ。
お店は串本だけなので、とっても地元感があるお店です。
串本に来た際は、また寄りたいです。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
