Chujodo Hompo (中将堂本舗)

4.5

Japanese Confectionery

This long-standing confectioner, just a one-minute walk from Taimadera Station, is where they make and sell famous local specialty Chujo-Mochi. Chujo-Mochi is an unsophisticated Japanese confection that uses the native wild-growing mugwort of the Katsuragi area in the mochi which is then wrapped around elegant sweet smooth red-bean paste. Enjoy the traditional flavors of their Chujo-Mochi and sencha green tea set or red bean soup with kusamochi (rice flour dumpling) as you relax in the peaceful interior of the shop. The front has a wide variety of products packed for take away with everything from two-piece to 48-piece box sets.

I took a rest at this famous traditional sweets café and shop after visiting to Taimadera temple. These kind of sweets are often so so taste because most of tourists never coming back to same places...

でしょう。まさに地元の名店であり、皆に愛されているのでしょう。
店の雰囲気、設は上品、可憐。
草餅とお茶を頂きましたが、まさに手作り。
素晴らしいお店。今どきこの様な良い店は減りましたね。

          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.
