Really delicious Japanese sweets that are popular among the people of Kyoto
Did you know that the people of Kyoto have unique tastes in art and cuisine?
I am pleased to introduce to you an excellent Kyoto confectioner which is very popular for a long time.
“Konpeito (sugar crystals) produced by Ryokujuanshimizu”
It is the only long-established store specializing in konpeito in Japan.
Konpeito is a small sphere-shaped candy with horn-like projections made from sugar and water. You can enjoy it because it’s very crunchy and sweet, and they look like colorful little stars.
“These are seasonable items”
It tastes rich, but is also light and delicate; it takes expert craftsmen 18 days to make it. This konpeito is like chocolate which doesn’t melt even in summer.
“These are 13 kinds of small pouches”
This store sounds like another fascinating example of how traditional Japanese culture is being reinvented in new and interesting ways by using modern flavors.
