#1 Kyoto Confectionary making at Kameya Yoshinaga
Kyoto is well known for its high quality of water. Kyoto cuisine, Tofu, and Sake makes the most of the natural water. Kameya-yoshinaga, located on Shijo Street, is a confectionary shop with more than 210 years history. The shop uses its famous well water called Samegai to make all confectionaries.
Sweets made by artisans with exclusive ingredients and professional skills are like works of art. There are a lot of kinds of sweets made from healthy natural ingredients such as sugar, red and white beans, sticky rice powder, and the like. With skills handed down from generation to generation and innovative ideas with a sense of fun, the confectionaries delight the eyes as well as the taste buds.
Japanese grow up with confectionaries. On celebration days such as childbirth, weddings and milestones of life, we eat them. Also, we enjoy the seasons by appreciating confectionaries shaped like cherry blossoms, autumn colors, and other seasonal flowers.
Making the confectionaries with an artisan will be a great opportunity to increase your knowledge about Japanese sweet history and skills in depth. Also, it is very fun to make artistic sweets. Would you like to eat your work of art with green tea?
