Near the Matsuhiro Shoten (clasp purse store), which we introduced last time, there is a long-established Japanese sweet shop, called "Oimatsu Kitano shop".
Speaking of Kamishichiken shops, we speak about the front gate of Kitano Tenmangu Shrine.
Speaking of Kitano Tenman-gu Shrine, we speak about its main Deity Sugawara Michizanekō.
And speaking of Michizanekō, we think of "plum"; as it is her favorite flower.
"Oimatsu Kitano shop" since old times, continues to make Japanese sweets reflecting the four seasons of Kyoto.
In February, they sell the "Kitano no ume" (plums of Kitano).
Using the red plump plum, the plum scent seems almost to comeout!
When visiting Kitano Tenman-gu Shrine, please go and check out this shop and try one of their plum sweets.
Look, buy and taste plums in Kyoto ①, viewing "Weeping plums" in "Jonan-gu Shrine" here.
