Story & Recommendation
A refined Japanese sweet with a light sweetness, made from red bean paste and mochi
Katsura Imperial Villa is a famed sightseeing spot featuring beautiful Japanese gardens and traditional buildings. Many visitors to the area also stop by at this traditional Japanese confectionery shop, established about 130 years ago. The proprietors of the shop are especially particular about the quality of the red bean paste that goes into their sweets. The red bean paste here is made in a traditional Japanese stove, which is an increasingly rare method in modern times. Although making the bean paste this way is much more of a time-consuming and painstaking process, it brings out a refined and delicious sweetness. We would like you to take your time to enjoy various Wagashi (Japanese Sweets) , in the surroundings of this traditional confectionery store, largely unchanged in both its decor, recipes and sweet-making methods since its establishment.
