■Popular souvenirs in Hoppe Town
In Hoppe Town, you can purchase a variety of confectionary such as Japanese and Western sweets.
Here are the three items that are particularly popular among the Japanese customers.
The crispy ”Age-monaka", fried in sesame oil has a texture and taste that overturns the concept of monaka. The "Nanban-yaki" is also a popular item of which the dough, made with brown sugar is steam fried.
※Because the Age-monaka is hand-made by a limited number of workers, we are currently experiencing a shortage. Therefore, for the time being, we have set a purchase limit of up to 12 tickets per person.
Simmered caramel sandwiched between crispy butter cookies. This is a popular sweet that has people lining up for it every day.
Rose gift chocolates that are semi-handmade and carefully crafted one by one. The chocolates that look like bouquets are sure to be pleasing as souvenirs and gifts.
■It is an item that is especially popular among overseas tourists
We talked to the person in charge of the sweets department and they told us which items that are especially often purchased by the overseas tourists.
The mame daifuku which uses shiratama flour in the making process has the right amount of softness and a chewy texture as its characteristic.
It is a sweet made by sandwiching "amo", which is the combination between adzuki beans and gyuhi, in a monaka with a picture of Hyakunin Isshu. The appearance is also very gorgeous as Japanese product.
It is an exquisite dorayaki with a fluffy dough and moist grainy red bean paste.
Furthermore, "mochi", "matcha", and "kinako" are very popular keywords among customers from overseas, and many people come looking for sweets using these ingredients.
