Encompassed within this symbol of traditional confectionery is the Japanese aesthetic. Pared ever so slightly without losing tradition to become a gift appropriate for today’s world.

Regional confections Castella・Marubolo・Macoron
Local delights cultivated by the climate and wisdom in each region. Castella, marubolo and macorons are also types of regional confections that ingeniously incorporate foreign culture. Simple flavors rooted in the local community, unchanged over time. We hope to transmit these deeply historic items to future generations.
