For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
I personally come to this shop often when I visit my families and friends who live in different cities. They enjoy very fine and pretty dolls made from Yatsuhashi. For those who are looking for a souvenir to bring back to your country, we recommend that you buy the pastries as they have a shelf life of one month to three months (depending on the products).
Nama Yatsuhashi
Recommend !
Nama Yatsuhashi / ¥594 (box)
This is the prettiest Japanese sweets I’ve ever seen! Depending on the season, the images of the dolls change. Not only does it look pretty, but it also tastes very well. If you give it to someone as a gift, they may surely enjoy both the looks and the taste. Please note that it only has a shelf life of one day.
carré de cannelle

carré de cannelle / 1pieces ¥108 -
If you would like to try this kind of Yatsuhashi, you can try it at the shop! There are two tables inside of the shop and you can try this kind of Yatsuhashi made in the kitchen. You can choose the topping from several options such as fruits jams and red bean paste. You can also select the color of Yatsuhashi. They all taste the same but have different colors.
Check it out !
