Japanese Confectionery

A long-established Japanese confectionery store founded in the Horeki period between 1751 and 1764, and located in Matsue City, Shimane Prefecture. Since the time of Matsudaira Fumai, the seventh lord of the Matsue Domain, Ichirikido has served as confectioner to the feudal domain. Their specialty sweet is himekosode, a so called otomegashi (limited edition sweet) because it was forbidden to make the sweet unless ordered to do so by the lord of Matsue. It is a delicate flavored sweet made from the finest peeled bean jam and specially made wasanbon sugar (fine-grained Japanese sugar). The store also sells many other sweets including the Matsue specialty, wakakusa, and nishikiogura, made with yokan (adzuki-bean jelly) sandwiched between castella sponge.

They started business more than 200 years ago, had delivered the sweets to Lord Matsudaira. A second I stepped in, the lady helped me, offered me green tea and samples. I wanted to purchase...

知人に和菓子を土産にしたく立ち寄ってみましたが店員さんも愛想が良く雰囲気もなかなか良かったです。オススメの最中を買っていきました。
Reviewed:2019/08/10 老舗和菓子店
江戸時代から続く、老舗和菓子店です。 お茶をすすめながらの試食は、商売上手かと思います。
松江はお茶の文化が盛んなので、和菓子店が多いらしいです。

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
