Sohonpo Shirozakeya (総本舗白酒屋)

4.0

Liquor Store

This shop, located outside the gate of Hasedera Temple in Sakurai City, Nara, is famous for its kusamochi (rice flour dumplings) and Narazuke (vegetables pickled in sake lees). Originally established as a sake brewery they started making Narazuke with their high-quality sake lees. Vegetables such as gourds, ginger, and cucumbers are left to carefully ferment over a three-year period to give them outstanding flavor and mouthfeel. Their kusafuku-mochi is also popular, using native mugwort kneaded into the mochi wrapped around red-bean paste giving it a pleasing smell and rich flavor.

長谷寺の名物は 「くさ餅」です。
参道にはくさ餅のお店がたくさんあります、「総本舗 白酒屋」さんで買ってみました。
昔ながらの製法を受け継いだ、懐かしく素朴なお味の草餅。
もちもちで香りよく甘さ控えめ、美味しいです。
Reviewed:2020/03/05 長谷寺門前草餅名物みたいです
ヨモギの草餅が美味しいですね。生でも焼きでもいけますが、私は焼きお勧めです。お店の中で座って頂けます。お茶も出して頂きました。店先にはヨモギと杵が。美味しい筈ですね。隣りの奈良漬け屋さんもやられてます。定番の瓜を購入しましたが、生姜も美味しかったです。
Reviewed:2019/10/09 長谷寺門前にあるよもぎの風味がよい草餅の老舗です。
近鉄長谷寺駅から長い距離を歩いて、やっと長谷寺の仁王門というところ、参道の左側にあります。明治8年創業という草餅の老舗です。3ケ400円だったと記憶しています。よもぎの風味が濃い感じで、餅もよく伸びます。餡は粒餡で納の甘さがよいです。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
