Traditionally, candy craftsmen were "traveling" salesmen who visited fairs, festivals and streets frequented by children to make candy right in front of the customers. Yet with the improved hygiene laws came the ban on such open-air food production, and the craft was destined to die.
However, the young candy craftsman Takahiro Yoshihara decided to defy the tradition by opening a shop to keep the beautiful tradition alive. And with what results!

Just look at the pictures and the quality of immediately apparent. Buy one of the pre-made candies or request one on the spot. You can even join a candy-making workshop!
Let the sweet scent and the Japanese craftsmanship gently lull you back to childhood.
