Kagizen Gift Shop

Kagizen Gift Shop
It located at small back street in the Groin. After opening the door, we were welcomed by a modern but traditional atmosphere. Cute and colorful Japanese sweets are covered by big dome-shaped glass, and I was stolen my attention by this unique display. This graceful colors and elegant forms are too cute to eat. All of items in this store are good for a souvenir or gifts for myself. I became happy just by looking throughout the store. A kitchen that you can see the process of making confectioneri...morees, and a gallery, where various programs and events are held, are in the back of the shop.

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I love the displays at this shop! All the items are very eye-catching and beautiful. I think little sugar confectioneries, Rakugan, are really nice to look at. They are truly works of art. I really enjoyed walking into the store as they remodeled an old Japanese house known as "machiya" into a lovely gift store.
Recommend !
Amegumo / ¥780
It is Lakugan which made with starch mixed with sugar and syrup. The design will change from month to month. This month's lakugan is 'Ame gumo'. Ame means candy, Kumo means cloud in Japanese.
Recommend !
Ochoma / ¥840 (20 pieces)
This is a regular lakugan which is offered throughout the year with same design. Red dot which is in top of the lakugan means dimple. It is really small compared with other lakugan but has detailed design.
