Kyo Namagashi-shi Matsuya
Elaborate and outstanding Japanese sweets through the seasons
This shop opened in 1888 specializing in rice cakes and was named Iroha-mochi Honten. After the war, the name changed to Matsuya and they started making Japanese sweets and over the years have become well known for their original sweets expressing seasonal scenery and customs of Japan. Funairi is a steamed sweet made with fresh eggs, flour, and white miso (soy bean paste) and is popular throughout the year. The outside of Funairi has a fragrant smell and sweet white miso is nicely spiced up with ginger and sesame. Budo-mochi is a sweet in which a whole grape is wrapped with white sweet bean paste and a super soft, thin rice cake outside. Enjoy the new taste of Japanese sweets with a sweet and sour flavor.
