Goshi Seika

Japanese Confectionery
This longstanding confectionary shop has been in business for over 90 years. The shop continues to make Sakura no Akebono, a delicate, pastel-colored confection which is one of Kikuchi's most well-known; as well as dorayaki pancake sandwiches; madeleines; and a variety of other sweets. Sakura no Akebono are a type of traditional rakugan candy which are made with a focus on creating an exquisitely moist texture. Made using Kumamoto glutinous rice and Kikuchi Onsen hot spring water, these soft confections have a melt-in-your-mouth texture. The crumbly rakugan outer crust is stuffed with a filling made with granulated sugar and glucose syrup. The shop receives orders from across the prefecture and beyond for this popular product to enjoy during New Year's, at weddings, and during the Doll Festival.

    3.0 Reviewed : 2020.03.23
    先日家人を誘って初来店しました。お目当はガイドブックに載っていた餡子入りの落雁「桜の曙」。興味津々で賞味したところ、彩は紅白、形は市松模様、甘さは控えめ、食感はふんわり&しっとり。落雁の概念が吹っ飛びました。やるね! お値段も良心的。ちなみに、創業は大正4年(1916年)。
