Kyono-Yosuga, Colorful confections packed in a wooden box
This Japanese confection shop is marked by its large billboard and curtain over the entryway. It was founded about 200 years ago. The interior of the shop still retains the atmosphere of the era of its founding, and the tools, items, and decorations from that era are on display. Its famous "Kyono-Yosuga" is a wooden box packed with colorful confections. The delicately hand-crafted confections are very delicious. They only stay fresh for about a week, but you can divide a box among a few members of your group to remember your trip by. It is fun to eat them while reflecting and talking among yourselves.
