Do you like traditional Japanese sweets? If you do, “Oimatsu” is a shop that you shouldn”t miss.
It provides beautiful, professional and good-flavoured Japanese sweets!! ’Kyo-gashi’ is a kind of Japanese traditional that Oimatsu has been making based on the tradition. These sweets are defined for use of rituals of Imperial Court and for tea ceremony.
Oimatsu offers season-limited ones like this “Natsukantou” (Sweet summer candy). It is made by agar (a gelatinous substance obtained from algae) and orange and only sold during summer!
If you have any chance to go travel in Kyoto, please have a try~ ヽ(*´∀｀)ノ
And if you have more time to spend in the city, you can make a reservation to have a one-hour class for making Japanese sweets! They give a short story of history background behind ‘Kyo-gashi’, too! You can find all the information here http://www.oimatu.co.jp/english/etop.html
