Smooth custard gently wrappedin sponge cake♡

A noted sweet of this confectionery, whose Karukan (steamed sweet bun) is also famous for being created after a request from Nariakira Shimazu (the 11th lord of Satsuma han), is Kasutadon (108 yen/ piece). This original sweet is composed of smooth custard made with a luxurious amount of locally-produced eggs wrapped in a soft sponge cake. With its light and gentle texture, you might feel that you can eat as many of them as you want. You can enjoy a totally different texture (like sherbet) by freezing them.

It is packed piece by piece. You can buy from one piece, so it is also good for bringing to a walk in the town.

Karutan-manju (119 yen/ piece) is domestically-produced azuki bean jam in a soft sponge cake made with yam. A clever arrangement of Karukan, a well-known sweet of Satsuma.

You can get help choosing sweets by talking to the staff over the counter. They serve a complimentary cup of tea while you select your items.
