Wagashi from Ganyuudou


14web_DSC_7200The wagashi are highly sought after because every piece of the confectionery here is made by hand, creating an exquisite, chewy texture. They are particularly famed for their yokan, a thick, jellied dessert made of red bean paste, agar, and sugar.

Sake from
Hananomai Brewing


14web_DSC_6753While there are many amazing sake labels to choose from, a perennial favourite is the simply named Tsuu. Best enjoyed warm, this slightly dry sake has a refreshing yet mellow quality. If you like umeshu, the brewery (P.20) also produces a top-notch plum liqueur using junmai sake (instead of shochu).
