Kyoto New Wave
The ancient city of Kyoto, which has a long history, is like a wonderland of Japanese sweets, with a wide variety of Japanese sweets shops, from long-established shops to up-and-coming shops. Among the many Japanese confectionery shops in Kyoto, we will introduce a shop that is attracting attention while valuing the old-fashioned manufacturing method, and working on making new Japanese confectionery such as appearance, ingredients, and SDGs!
◎Taneka Shoten (Kyoto, Karasuma Oike)
Seeds – peanuts, walnuts, almonds – (1 piece) 250 yen each
Normal monaka (1 piece) 250 yen
The “Tanemi” series is an evolutionary system of monaka, conceived by a shop that has been making monaka for over 70 years. The skin of the monaka is made from glutinous rice flour from Habutae, Shiga Prefecture, and crushed mixed nuts are kneaded into it to give it a rich flavor. Peanut, walnut, and almond-shaped wafers are filled with Hokkaido azuki bean paste, peanut butter, caramelized walnut, and almond butter. In addition, the fragrant skin baked only with glutinous rice flour and the “Futsu no Monaka” filled with the store’s special coarse bean paste will also be available.
Ice monaka (one piece) 350 yen
“Ice monaka”, which is made by blending three types of milk in a golden ratio, homemade gyuhi, and sweet bean paste sandwiched between them, can only be enjoyed at the venue!
◎”Umezono oyatsu” (Kyoto, Kyoto Station)
Mitarashi butter sandwich (5 pieces) 1,188 yen
Aoi Nishikawa, the third-generation owner of Amato Chaya Umezono, which was founded in Kyoto’s Kawaramachi shopping district in 1927, has opened oyatsu, a new confectionery shop made with Japanese and Western ingredients. “Mitarashi Butter Sandwich” is a long-lasting sweet made from the famous “Mitarashi Dango” that has been loved for a long time at “Amato Chaya Umezono”. The sweet and spicy mitarashi dango sauce is wrapped in butter cream with the soft scent of daiginjo, and sandwiched between crunchy cookies. The cute mitarashi dango branding is also a point (heart)
◎”KAHOU-” (Nijo, Kyoto)
From the left) Karufe – Anmitsu – (1 piece) 702 yen
Fruit -Fruit Yose- (1 piece) 702 yen
Kaho Dango – Mitarashi – (1 piece) 594 yen
A creative Japanese sweets shop using seasonal fruits. “Kato Dango -Mitarashi-” is a bottle filled with carefully selected rice flour dumplings, Kaho’s special mitarashi sauce and fragrant soybean flour. Japanese-flavoured jelly, bracken-starch dumplings, sweet bean jelly, panna cotta, and other colorful Japanese sweets that combine Japanese and Western styles with novel ideas are popular. We are also actively working on SDGs, such as not using plastic products for packaging materials.
Japanese confectionery expresses the change of seasons and is a sweet that can be enjoyed in all four seasons. Look out for shops that express the traditional four seasons of Japan with a modern sense, such as Japanese sweets that make you feel the four seasons with colors and shaved ice that uses seasonal ingredients. Enjoy sweets with a new sensation while feeling the change of seasons.
◎”Kashiwaya Tsuchiya” (Gifu/Ogaki)
kasane -Autumn- ~Who’s He’s Not Toki~ (4 pieces) 702 yen
Founded in 1755, Yuya Tsuchiya, the ninth-generation owner of the long-established Japanese confectionery shop “Tsuchiya”, opened his own shop in 2020 in search of freedom in making sweets. “Kasane”, which reflects the four seasons of Japan in amber confectionery, has become a hot topic for its beautiful jewel-like color and cuteness. The color and taste change with the seasons, and autumn “kasane” expresses the melancholy scenery of the evening. You can enjoy the taste of Muscat for blue, orange for orange, and peach for yellow. ◎ “Tea and Sake Tasuki” (Kyoto, Karasuma Oike)
Nama Daifuku (for 1 person) 1,450 yen
Based on the concept of “valuing what already exists and creating new value,” this café uses seasonal ingredients from Kyoto and expresses it with classical “shaved ice.” Inspired by Nama Dorayaki, the “Nama Daifuku” is based on condensed milk and brown sugar syrup, with plenty of white bean sauce with Saikyo miso as a secret ingredient. Inside is gyuhi ice cream, whipped cream, adzuki beans, and more! In addition, there is also “Matcha Mitsu” using Matcha from Kyoto Prefecture. Cossy and Yoshi’s Japanese Sweets Select Shop
A select shop that collects attention-grabbing Japanese sweets by Snack Navigator Cossy, who spreads the charm of the snacks of Hanshin Umeda Main Store on SNS, and Yoshi, the buyer in charge of “Mirai of Japanese Sweets”. At the venue, you can enjoy the deliciousness of the shops that were very popular with people queuing last time and the shops that are popular among locals!
◎ “Noshiume Honpo Satoya” (Tokamachi, Yamagata)
Tamayura (12 pieces) 2,592 yen – 20 scheduled to be sold each day – Founded in 1821, this long-established Japanese and Western
confectionery shop has been in business for over 200 years. Shintaro Sato, the 8th generation owner of the shop, makes neo-Japanese confectionery with the motto of “a little more freedom in Japanese confectionery,” using old-fashioned famous confectionery and modern sensibilities. The famous confectionery is “Noshiume”, which is derived from the comfort medicine of the Edo period. Ripe plums from Yamagata Prefecture are made into agar and dried to create a unique chewy texture. This “Noshiume” is topped with white bean paste and agar-agar-based raw chocolate to create “Tamayura,” a challenge for the shop. The butter-free chocolate is rich but has a light
aftertaste, and the sourness of the plum brings out the chocolate. [Image 9
Sora Nomukou (1 bottle) 1,296 yen -Scheduled sales of 20 each day- Inspired by the work of a glass artist from Yamagata, this product is a modern sensibility arrangement of the agar confectionery
“Kingyokukan”. A transparent layer with plenty of air bubbles, which is taboo for agar sweets, and a blue and purple gradation layer express the world of the universe, the sea, and the sky. The taste is a slight ginger flavor, and it is a solid Japanese sweet. It can be eaten as it is, or cut into small pieces and submerged in soda for a fantastic drink.
