    Senbon Tamajuken

    Nishijin’s sweetshop famous for its Nishijin Fumi

    This shop opened in 1938 after the first owner completed training at Honke Tamajuken.  Nishijin Fumi is one of their popular items in which the red bean paste is wrapped in a sticky rice cake with the design taken from Nishijin’s kimono textile.  Their sweets represent Kyoto’s tradition, culture and four seasons and have a sophisticated and simple look.  Also, their elegant and beautiful appearance comes from the soft and pale coloring.  Aokaede is made with Hokkaido’s red bean paste, which is subtly sweetened, wrapped in Rakugan (dry sweet made with sugar, rice flour and soy bean flour) made using Wasanbon (fine grained Japanese sugar) from Kagawa prefecture.  Enjoy the wonderful harmony of two different flavors as it melts in your mouth.
