Roken Manto Takeuchi, Okaido Branch労研饅頭たけうち大街道支店

Japanese Confectionery

This confectionery opened in 1931 in Okaido, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture, and its most well-known product is its famous “Roken manto” sweet buns. They were originally created at the Institute for Labor Science in Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture by adapting sweet buns from China to Japanese tastes, and in Matsuyama during the early Showa period, they were produced and sold to raise money for night school expenses as well as for meals. Their steamed bread has garnered many fans over the years for its simple taste, soft texture, and mild sweetness created using the same yeast that was being used when the store opened. There are many other varieties as well, such as black soybean, pinto bean, mugwort, strained bean paste, and more, and frozen sets are sold as well. Note: Currently closed.

素朴な味のまんじゅうです。その日のうちに食べましょう。翌日は、霧吹きで水分を補給し、レンジでチンしましょう。

地元の友人のおすすめで、毎回買って帰ります。
お店が工事中で三越の地下で営業していました。
小ぶりの饅頭で中の餡がしっかりしていてほくほくしています。
種類もたくさんあるのでどれにするか迷いますよ。

現在は建て替え中(仮店舗は三越地階にあります)でした。
饅頭は素朴な味のする懐かしい味わいの蒸しパンです。一番人気は金時豆入りで柔らかいほの甘さが癖になりそうでした。

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country’s oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
