About this sight

Exclusively located in Nikko, this store offers specialty cakes and souvenirs. The store is most popular for its Castella cakes, which are moist, soft and fluffy. The cakes are baked using acacia honey and syrup made from quality glutinous rice of Kyushu, then topped with golden flakes. Additionally, the cakes do not contain any food additives. They offer a subtle sweetness and delicious aroma, with every bite melting in your mouth. Packed in a box bearing the crest of a noble family, these Castella cakes make for an impressive souvenir or as a great dish to serve visitors at home. Aside from their Castella cakes, the store also sells other traditional Japanese sweets and confectionary. Opening hours vary by season, so make sure to check before visiting.
