Tsukisekai Honpo (月世界本舗)

4.5

Japanese Confectionery

This Japanese confectionary established in 1897 is a five-minute walk from Nishicho Station on the Toyama Chihou Railway. Tsukisekai, the shop's famous namesake confection, is a dried candy made from eggs, wasanbon sugar, and kanten (agar jelly) that evokes an image of pale moonlight. The crisp texture of this melt-in-your-mouth sweet pairs well not just with Japanese tea, but with many other drinks including coffee. Other offerings include their marshmallow-like Maidohaya, made with eggs and sugar and featuring the fragrance of Yuzu citrus, as well as a sesame-flavored variation called Maidohaya Goma.

月世界。「げっせかい」じゃなく、「つきせかい」と読む。
富山の銘菓である。
初めて出会ったのはいつの頃か忘れたが、とにかくオリジナリティー溢れる激美味な和菓子だとの印象をずっと持ち続けてきた。

その遠く離れた県のお菓子を、近所のスーパーで見かけた。
全国銘菓フェアみたいなワゴンセールをやってて、富山代表で出品されてたわけだ。
細長い羊羹サイズの1箱が税込み496円。1も2もなく購入だ。

          Toyama is one of the three prefectures that house the Japanese Alps, with its southern and eastern borders comprising one long stretch of mountains, out of which the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is forged. While traditional crafts fill the northern coastal cities of Toyama and Takaoka, thatched roof houses offer unrivalled views against a backdrop of fantastic scenery at Gokayama in the mountainous area in the south of the prefecture.
