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

4.0

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.

まんじゅうと書いてありますが正確には蒸しパンの方が合っていると思います。素朴な味で美味しかったです。

観光で大街道を散策中に 古そうな看板が気になり寄ってみました。饅頭というより蒸しパンで、餡入りのを食べましたが 素朴な味で美味しかったです。店員さんは親切でした。散策しながら食べる、と伝えると温めてくれました。

          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.
