Japanese sweets shop inheriting 180 years of tradition
Chokyudo is a traditional sweets manufacturer which began operating in 1831. Since then they have been creating a variety of items including ‘Kinuta’ that was originally designed by the first generation owner and ‘Hanaomote’ that imitates noh masks. Another popular item is ‘Kohaku.’ A piece of jelly made from agar is coated with sugar. Inside is like jelly and the outside has a crispy icing. You can enjoy the deliciousness of mixed textures. ‘Hanakotoba’ is an assorted box of ‘Kohaku’ (1,155 yen/one box), which are decorated in beautiful and colorful designs of cherry blossoms and butterfly motifs for spring-time, they make a suitable gift and can be kept for a length of time.
