Monastery confections with a sister nun's prayer
There are many churches and monasteries in Kyoto where there are many temples and shrines.My family is not Christian, but I love old movies set in monasteries.As a Kyoto resident, I am most familiar with the "Catholic Carmel Abbey" in Kinugasa.In the monastery, sister nuns make and sell sweets and sundries for daily food and prayers.At "Takino Sake Shop" in Shijo-Karasuma, you can buy monastery sweets, and I visit there whenever I want.Takino sake shop is a sake shop that started to sell convent's sweets because the family had been Christian for generations.There are sweets and food ordered from monasteries all over Japan such as Carmel and Trappist monasteries.For example, baked sweets such as "Trappist cookie" "Goffret" and "Marurotto"."Trappist butter" or "butter candy" or "Orange jam" or "Mass Wine" or "Wine cake".Furthermore, it is said that your wish will come true if you eat it while chanting "porbolone".All of these are simple ingredients with the devout prayers of the sisters, and the monastery life comes to mind.The illustrations of flowers and animals on the package of "Goffret" tickle your heart.Other packages are also retro and cute, and will enrich your tea time.Takino Saketen691 Motohoseiji-cho, Karasuma Higashi-iru, Nishikikoji-dori Street, Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto CityThree minutes on foot from Hankyu Karasuma Station or Shijo Station on the subway

A sweets to ward off evil, which was established right after the Onin War "Mizuta Gyokuundo"
In the 1000 year history of Kyoto, the plague of misfortune has spread many times, and Shinto rituals to appease misfortune have been held in various places.At the time of Shinto rituals, sweets and rice cakes were offered as a blessing to ward off diseases.This time, we would like to introduce the Monzen Kashi of Goryo-jinja Shrine (Kamigoryo-jinja Shrine), which is famous as a shrine to ward off evil."Gyokuundo Mizuta" was established more than 540 years ago in 1477.The origin of this famous sweet "Karaita" is nearly 1160 years ago.It is said that it was triggered by a plague of misfortune in Kyoto in 863.At that time, "Goryo-e" was being held at Shinsen-en Garden in order to eliminate the epidemic.The Chinese style rice crackers offered at that time are said to be the origin of the "Karaita".KIBI no Makibi, one of the enshrined deities of Goryo-jinja Shrine, brought back "Karaita Senbei (Chinese rice cracker) " as a Japanese envoy to Tang Dynasty China in the Nara period.However, Goryo-e was abolished in the Onin War (1467-1477) in the Muromachi period.It is said that, after the war, the ancestors of Mizuta Gyokuundo learned how to make "Karaita Senbei" based on the past records, which led to the restoration of Toita senbei.A teahouse was opened in the precincts of Goryo-jinja Shrine, and "Karaita" became popular as a confection to ward off evil.The cafe was moved to Toriimae of Goryo-jinja Shrine in the early Showa period "Gyokuundo Mizuta".We have been selling only 1 kind of "Karaita" for more than 540 years since our establishment.The ingredients for "Karaita" are simple: flour, sugar, and eggs.On the other hand, one of the reasons for its depth is that it is made by a more complicated process than I expected.The "Karaita" which is carefully hand-baked one by one, has a surprisingly crispy texture.It is cut into thin rectangles and looks like a charm to ward off evil.Why don't you buy it on your way home from Goryo Shrine?Mizuta Gyokuundo394 Kamigoryomae-cho, Karasuma Higashi-iru, Kamigoryomae-dori, Kamigyo Ward, Kyoto City3 minute walk from Kuramaguchi Subway Station
