Rencon (lotus root) Sweets Seiko / ￥270 for 1
It is made from Wasanbon (fine Japanese sugar) and starch of lotus root. Extremely sticky texture will surprise you! A faint fragrance of bamboo leaves is a good accent. You can buy it from one piece, and a nice packing box is available according to how many you want.
Azuki (red beans) Crackers / ￥1,836 for 7 packs in 3
Ingredients are just only red beans from the north of Kyoto, Kyotango, an area known for its Azuki production. They are made by pressing beans carefully and softly. The longer you chew it, the more flavorsome it becomes. These red bean crackers have no food additive even salt and sugar.
How to buyJust point what you want in the display so that a shop staff can get it from a stock for you.
