A gift from Heaven Hon-kudzu


Established in 1819.
The founder Kyusuke studied the pros and cons of pueraria plants (a type of kudzu) as well as sugar manufacturing methods, and finally he came up with a pure-white hon-kuzu powder, which was even offered to the shogunate as a high quality gift. He has preserved the methods and made it all by hand.

Available to purchase the products and try a taste of kuzumochi (arrowroot-starch dumplings) and kuzukiri (translucent sliced arrowroot) at the shop.

Field trips possible. Reservation required.
