Candy Store

Shasaian Hirashio is a souvenir shop with a café featuring Japanese-style sweets on the second floor, located outside the main gate of Yahiko Shrine. Originally built in 1849 by the shrine carpenters as a traditional farmhouse, the building was repurposed by the German architectural designer Karl Bengs. The eye is drawn to the red pine colored outer walls, the modern interior furnishings, and the black pillars and beams. The first floor features furoshiki wrapping cloths, hand towels, incense, traditional sweets, and other Japanese-style souvenirs, and customers can relax in the tea shop on the second floor, which sells sweets made from ingredients, such as the highest grade of matcha tea from Uji and carefully selected Tamba Dainagon azuki beans. The nearest train station is Yahiko Station.

Reviewed:2018/11/10 ほっとする甘味がそろってます
弥彦神社の鳥居の目の前のお店です。一階はお土産・雑貨の「ひらしお」、二階が甘味処の「社彩庵」となっています。
社彩庵では宇治抹茶、丹波大納言小豆、丹波産糸寒天、黒洲きな粉、地元弥彦の切り餅など、素材にこだわっているようです。抹茶ぜんざいと栗ぜんざいをいただきましたが、どちらも甘さ控えめで優しい味でした。特に抹茶ぜんざいはふっくらとした小豆の甘味と抹茶の苦味が絶妙でした。

一階はお土産屋さんで、中に入ってから階段を上がって喫茶店に。古民家の太い梁が天井に見えます。古い箪笥やこけしが、レイアウトされてレトロ感を醸し出しています。窓から弥彦神社の赤い⛩が見えます。この窓は、木製枠のペアガラスサッシで、寒い冬でも結露なく暖かく、鳥居が良く見えます。
スイーツは、素材にこだわりがあり、あまり甘くなく、素材の味を楽しめます。夏は白玉の入ったパフェ、冬は餅の入ったぜんざいがおす...
Reviewed:2017/08/12 弥彦神社の真ん前”社彩庵・ひらしお”
弥彦神社のほんとに真ん前です。なにか、お土産を買おうかなと思い、寄りました。特に目ぼしいものは見つかりませんでした。少し歩くと酒屋さんがあり、そこで日本酒を買いました。たくさんの種類があり目移りすること間違い無しです。
