Kikkodo (Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter Branch)橘香堂 美観地区店

Japanese Confectionery

This long-established Japanese confectionery shop is located in the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter of Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture and opened in 1877. It is the shop that created the famous Kurashiki sweet “Murasuzume,” which is made by taking a thin crepe and coating the browned side with coarse sweet red bean paste and wrapped in the shape of half moon. You can purchase Murasuzume made by expert bakers, and can even try your own hand at baking some. It takes about five minutes, and you can choose between regular and jumbo sizes. Visitors will take turns making them after applying.

Okayama Main Areas


Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
