Japanese Confectionery

This veteran Japanese confectionery has been making sweets with a nod to the seasons in Nakatsugawa since 1864. Their confections with domestic chestnut are especially famous, and their chestnut and mashed sweet potato kurikinton sold from autumn to winter is recommended. Carefully cooked chestnuts are added to the chunky sweet potatoes along with sugar, and then squeezed through a tea cloth. This leaves its natural pale-yellow color and the rich aroma of chestnuts that people love. Year-round sellers are also popular, including their “Ureshi-no-Kuri, made with large chestnuts prepared their own special way that maintains their fragrance and flavor.

Reviewed:2019/10/25 栗きんとん食べ比べ ねっとり
中津川の栗きんとんを3種食べ比べしました。川上屋・すや・松葉をいただきましたがどれも300円未満とお手軽な価格なので食べ比べお勧めです。
川上屋の栗きんとんは一番ねっとりとした和菓子の栗きんとんです。舌の上でじっくりほどけるのですが甘みは栗本来の甘みで後味が強く残ります。
おせちに入っているような甘い栗きんとんとは違うので時間をかけて食べてほしい一品です。

楽しみにしていた川上屋さんの栗きんとん。山路と栗蒸し羊羹も併せて購入しました。私の好みとしては好物の栗蒸し羊羹が一番美味しかったかな。

すやと並び、栗きんとんの有名店。新栗の栗きんとんをいただきました。この時期はまだ九州の栗とのことで、地元の栗はまだ早いとのことでしたが、味は抜群です。

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. 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.
