Blanca (Toba Main Store) (ブランカ 鳥羽本店)
The main store of the Western-style confectionary Blanca is located in the city of Toba. Its flagship product is its Shell Leines, i.e. madeleines made in the shape of pearl oyster shells. These sweets have not only won numerous national prizes, like Honorary President Prize at the Japan Confectionary Expo 1994, or Prefectural Prize (Mie) at the Japan Gift Awards 2017, but were also chosen to be served during coffee breaks at the G7 Iseshima Summit. Natural pearl shell calcium, made by grinding up the mother-of-pearl inside the shell, is added to the dough, and this confection is popular for its crispy outer layer and its moist center.

Spread across the eastern side of the Kii Peninsula, Mie prefecture boasts hundreds of kilometers of pretty coastline comprising the oyster-rich Toba city and Shima National Park all the way down to Kumano, a city that marks the beginning of part of the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage, which runs into neighboring Wakayama prefecture. However, Mie is best known for the Ise Jingu Shinto shrine inland, one of the oldest and largest shrines in the country.
