* The locals don't speak English regularly, but they are ready to welcome you and convey the fascination of Yamashiro.
It’s a long-established Japanese confectionery shop founded in 1933 in Nishikimachi Hondori Shopping Street, which sells authentic local confectionery at reasonable prices. In addition to Japanese sweets, Western sweets such as cookies are also avairable, and bread too every Monday and Thursday. There are plenty of seasonal products, and you can enjoy different flavors each time you visit.
The show window on the wall is lined with the sweets making tools used at the time of establishment. The appearance of calculating with a five-ball abacus, which is rarely seen nowadays, is also a feature of our shop.

Wasabi yokan and Wasabi cookie(this photo): Spiciness of wasabi in the sweetness of confections is very addictive – even to me.
