Kakko-ya (郭公屋)

4.5

Candy Store

This sweets store is located in Ichinoseki City, Iwate Prefecture. Right in the middle of the sightseeing spot Genbi Gorge, you can eat dango dumplings while enjoying the superb view. Their famous kakko dango dumplings are made in three flavors: mitarashi (sweet soy sauce), sesame and anko (red bean paste). In addition, you can make orders from the cliff opposite the store, and since the dumplings are transported across in a basket, they have become known as flying dango.

見晴らしのよさそうな東屋が大きな岩盤の上に立っていました。あそこでひと休みしようとそこまで行くと、何やらロープに竹かごがあります。よく見ると、対岸にロープが繋がっていて籠に500円入れて、そばの板を鳴らしてくださいと。その通りすると、しばらくして団子が入った竹籠が川を渡ってきました。確かに空を飛んだ!!到着した籠には二人分のカップ入りのお茶がありました。心優しい団子屋さんです。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region’s delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you’ll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
