Koshikakean腰掛庵

4.5

Candy Store

Koshikakean is a Japanese-style confectionery store run from a more than 100 year old building in Tendo City. The shop sells Japanese confectionery like their jouman, or sake bun. The bun itself is made with ginjoushu sake and sake lees and is stuffed with fine-grained sweet bean paste. Other sweets include their light and fluffy warabi mochi. Koshikakean was also famous for its kakigori, or shaved ice, which was so popular there were always too many customers in the shop which forced it to stop selling the ice cones. They have however begun to sell kakigori again at a sister store, available only in the summer time, and it is still as popular with customers now as it ever was.

わらびもちと限定のいちごわらびもちを購入。やっぱりおいしい、美味しすぎです。いちごわらびもちは初めてでしたが、これも感動ものでした。

15時頃到着しました。駐車場では、親切丁寧に誘導して頂きました。また、「12月季節限定品」が、販売予定とのことです。ふと壁際を見ると、珍しく「ミント」が、こんもり自生しております。さて、お店は、商品販売だけで店内飲食できませんでした。少し残念でした。わらび餅を購入し、一階と二階のお部屋を拝見しました。二階は、整理中の書籍・資料等多数の品を展示しております。古書を素手で触られている方も居りましたが...

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
