Unlike ordinary Mitarashi dango, this is a special “Mitarashi komochi” with Mitarashi sauce inside the mochi. As soon as you bite into it, sweet Kansai style soy-based sauce flows out from inside the thin mochi dough! This “Mitarashi mochi” from the long-established Japanese sweets shop with a 380 year history is bite-sized and moderately priced, making it a perfect souvenir.

Sumiyoshikaan Kikuju “Dorayaki”

Sumiyoshikaan Kikuju is located near Sumiyoshi Taisha in Osaka. This shop is so famous that people visit from afar to buy the specialty “dorayaki!” The surface of the dorayaki is baked to a lovely golden color with a gentle, sweet-smelling aroma. In addition, the moist dough is filled with plenty of large-grain red bean paste and candied chestnuts. Kikuju dorayaki is a souvenir with a nostalgic feeling that you can give friends and family.

The unique Uji-en “raw chocolat” in the Hyottoko package is a perfect souvenir. This luxurious raw chocolat “Hyottoko” blends high-grade Belgian chocolate with Uji-en hojicha (roasted green tea). The raw chocolat is mildly sweet and retains the aromatic flavor of the custom-made hojicha. The matcha raw chocolat “Okame” made from specialty tea leaves is also recommended!

Canelé is a traditional French pastry. Canelé Dou is a popular Osaka shop that sells original canelé flavors made to suit Japanese tastebuds with flavours such as black soybean kinako and hojicha. In addition six basic styles such as “shiro” and “matcha anko,” there are limited edition items that change monthly. We recommend the “kokuto kurumi” that has black sugar kneaded into the dough. The outside is crisply baked but the inside has a moist texture and you can enjoy the sweet black sugar aroma. This canelé is an ideal souvenir with its pretty appearance and small size that can fit in your palm.

Not only the long beloved Mitarashi komochi and dorayaki, but elegant and delicious sweets such as canelé and raw chocolat are very popular. There is no doubt that any of these Osaka souvenirs will be happily received!
