Murakami Kaishindo offers not only traditional Western-style confectionery that it has been making since the time of its founding, such as Russian cakes and orange jelly, but also new Western-style cookies. Most are sold per piece, so you can buy one of each to try them out. You should definitely try one of the new products alongside staples like the Russian cakes.
Murakami Kaishindo’s bags have a distinctive, mysterious pattern reminiscent of ancient Egypt. The silvery gray, shiny wrapping paper has a luxurious feel to it, but the whimsical pattern on it makes the whole look very rewarding. The wrapping paper is so unique that you will want to take a picture of the bag.
