Yajikita Manju (sweet bean-paste bun)
Miso Manju (miso-paste buns) and Saka Manju (sake-flavored buns) are perfect sovenirs of your trip in Fujieda, a historical inn town, on the Tokaido Road.
Yaji and kita are the characters of the book “Tokaidoucyu Hizakurige ” written by Jyuppensha Ikku. He was a popular writer in the late Edo Period.
Since this confection was named after them, Jyuppensha Ikku’s descendants donated his pestle to our shop. He carried it because he loved grated Japanese mountain potato and used the pestle to stir the grated mountain potato. It is exhibited in our shop.
Fujiikuchiyo - unique sweets in Fujieda
The sweet bean-paste buns were named after the wish for the permanent flourish of wisteria (called Fuji in Japanese) trees and Fujieda City.
