A long-standing Japanese confectionary shop established in the Genroku era (1688-1704). The shop’s signature item is its kuri kinton mashed sweet potatoes and candied chestnuts. The shop also offers many other Japanese sweets made with chestnuts, including kuri natto glazed chestnuts and kuri yokan chestnut jelly. Some of the shop’s items, such as the kurumi mochi walnut rice cakes and kudamono mandara jelly are available year-round, but much of what the shop sells are seasonal only sweets which are only offered until the ingredients used to make them run out, such as the kaya arare Japanese nutmeg snacks and the natsu yokan summer jelly. The shop is adjoined by the Japanese-style sweets café Kaya, which serves zenzai sweet adzuki bean soup and shiratama rice flour dumplings. You can also enjoy the shop’s seasonal Japanese confections here. The shop is normally closed on Thursdays but remains open without close from September to December.

A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
