An established Kyoto-style sweet shop sustained by the artistic handiworks
Kofukudo opened in 1868 in Kyoto and is known by Kyoto locals with the name of their signature item, Gojo Giboshi Monaka. Besides the Gojo Giboshi Monaka, of course, they have many other good selections of Japanese sweets in the shop, some of which are seasonal and specially made for celebratory occasions. They also accept customized orders as well as a catering service in the hope of providing the appeal and beauty of Japanese sweets to more people. One of the items, Fukusa uses finest quality ingredients such as Dainagon Azuki red beans from the Tanba region of northern Kyoto, and this is absolutely Kofukudo’s specialty. One of the bread contains matcha green tea in the dough and has smashed red bean paste inside while the brown sugar flavor one has smooth strained red bean paste. Compare and enjoy different texture and flavor.
