Tsuruya Yoshinobu

Nihonbashi
Confectionery

In Kyoto, Tsuruya Yoshinobu has been creating wagashi, traditional Japanese confectioneries made from red bean paste and rice flour, for more than 200 years. The designs reflect nature, with creations that look like roses, satsuki azaleas, cherry blossoms, and hydrangeas. What’s special about the Tokyo location, in the Nihonbashi district, is that you can sit at a counter and watch as the craftsman, or shokunin, creates a seasonal sweet and complements it with a cup of matcha.
