(御菓子処 嶋屋本店)

Japanese Confectionery

A 15-minute walk from JR Katata Station. This Japanese confectionary shop, established in 1985, is located close to Shiga Prefectural Katata High School and is just right of the Ogi Intersection. In recent years, the shop's strawberry-stuffed daifuku rice cakes have become very popular and have been frequently featured in the media. These exquisite treats are only available from mid-November to mid-April and are also only made in small quantities. The shop sells a wide variety of other confections, many of which have won awards in the National Confectionary Exposition, such as a banana and walnut daifuku, and detchi yokan jelly with chestnuts.

          Shiga Areas


          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.
