Kyoto's 100-year-old premium sugar roasted chestnut shop: Hayashi Manshodo
Located in Shinkyogoku and Shijodori, the 100-year-old Hayashi Manshodo was established in 1874 (7th year of the Meiji period). Different from other stores, its chestnuts are produced in Hebei Province's Qinglong Manchu Autonomous County Qinhuangdao City and are known as "Hebei chestnuts." Hebei chestnuts are sweet, delicious and nutritious. The chestnut has an astringent skin (namely the outer crust and thin skin around the pulp) can be easily peeled so they are suitable for frying with sugar. The shop's chestnut wok with more than 80 years' history is still simmering every day. From a distance, you can smell the burst of sugar roasted chestnut fragrance, which is very alluring. And the store never sells leftover chestnuts. Everything is sold on the day of production in order to maintain its quality. In addition to roasted chestnuts, chestnut ice cream, chestnut biscuits, and chestnut candy products are sold. This premium chestnut shop with its long history is sure to make you raise your thumb and praise its deliciousness!
