Watayo (和た与)

Japanese Confectionery

A long-standing Japanese confectionary shop established in 1863 located in 2 Chome Tamaki-cho, Omihachiman City. The shop’s yokan jelly, made by steaming a bean jam wrapped in bamboo peels, was often bought as a souvenir by young apprentices after visiting home to give to their employers due to the reasonable price of these tasty sweets. Because the word for these apprentices is “decchi” in Japanese, the shop’s yokan jelly came to be called “decchi yokan,” and today decchi yokan is one of the Omi area’s most famous local confections. The shop still sells its “Decchi Yokan” made according to the same process as when it first opened its doors, as well as uiro-mochi sweet rice cakes and seasonal confections.

でっち羊羹、普通の羊羹より少しもっちりして軽めで、食べやすいと思いました。
ういろうも売られていて、試食させていただいたら美味しかったです。
お店の前に丁稚飛び出し坊やが居るので、そちらも要チェック(笑)
Reviewed:2019/02/20 看板商品は、でっち羊羹
看板商品は、でっち羊羹。このでっち羊羹は、寒天ではなく小麦粉で固めた羊羹。手間がかからないので、でっちさんでも買える羊羹という意味です。
比較すると少し粉っぽいところがなくはないのですが、これはこれで悪くない。別物と思っていただいた方が馴染めるかもしれません。

名店の「和た与」の此の丁稚羊羹は少し甘いね、
又もう少し柔らかくても良いかな?
しかし「和た与」近江八幡では超有名ですね。
丁稚羊羹の由来は、「近江八幡から全国へ丁稚奉公に出た子供達が、帰省後に奉公先へお土産として持ち帰った」ものとされるが、丁稚でも買える安価な羊羹らしいですね、ちなみに丁稚とは関西言葉で小僧を意味する。その製法は、小麦粉と小豆を練ったものを竹の皮に包んで蒸し上げるというもの。独特...

          Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
