    Matsuya Tokiwa

    A long-established Japanese confectionery shop known for their original sweet, “Miso Matsukaze”

    Matsuya Tokiwa is one of the oldest Japanese confectionery shops in Kyoto which opened in the 1650s.  Since their very beginning, they have served finest quality confectioneries to the imperial family, famous temples and masters of tea ceremonies.  Their tradition has continued for 16 generations up until today.  The must-try item is “Miso Matsukaze” which has become synonymous with Matsuya Tokiwa.  Its appearance is similar to a Castella sponge cake, but once tasted the rich, sweet aroma is immediately evident.  It uses Saikyo miso (Kyoto’s special white miso soy bean paste) as one of the ingredients that produces the delicate flavor. This sweet was a favorite of both the Meiji and Showa Emperors.  Miso Matsukaze can be recommended for those who don’t usually favor sweet things as its sweetness is both subtle and inviting.
