Story & Recommendation
Shinko “sweet sticky rice cake”—a Japanese confection beloved for 200 years
Gion Manju is a Japanese sweets shop located next to the Minami-za Theater. This venerable shop was established about 200 years ago. Their specialty item is Shinko “sweet sticky rice cake,” made from rice flour. Its springy texture and mild sweetness have made it a longtime favorite of Kyoto residents. They also offer a selection of petite confections that are great for taking to go. For a group of people, we recommend buying the Shinko three-variety combination, all made with seasonal ingredients. Take a walk around Gion, enjoying the various flavors and textures of wagashi.
