About Tsuruya Yoshinobu TOKYO MISE

Tsuruya Yoshinobu TOKYO MISE is the Japanese-style confectionery(Wagashi) cafe operated by Tsuruya Yoshinobu.

The store has “Kayu-Jaya,” where Japanese confectioners make Namagashi (Japanese fresh confections) right in front of you, and a tea room “Sabō,” where you can enjoy anmitsu, zenzai, and other Japanese-style confections.

Appreciate the traditional skill of the Japanese confectionersWagashi artisan right before your eyes.

At “Kayu-Jaya,” you can sit at a counter with a modern Japanese atmosphere similar to a sushi restaurant and enjoy freshly made Japanese sweets made in front of your eyes by skilled confectioners.

Here you can enjoy matcha (Japanese green tea) and seasonal fresh confections.

Many people think of drinking matcha in Japan as a “tea ceremony,” but here, even first-timers can experience matcha in a casual way.

The selection of Japanese confections varies depending on the season. When we visited in June, we were able to choose from the following three options.

We ordered “Ajisai-Kinton” which depicts a brightly colored hydrangea and “Sekichiku” with a pretty flower motif, perfect for early summer.

The following photos show how Japanese confections are skillfully made by confectioners.

First, “Ajisai-Kinton”.

Kinton is a colored white bean paste made by cooking white beans and other ingredients.

Kinton of various colors are made into small chunks using a colander, which are then used to make hydrangea shapes. Look at the craftsmanship in creating round hydrangeas with well-balanced colors.

And another flower motif, “Sekichiku”.

The exquisite gradation of white and pink looks like real flowers. Don’t miss the way they use wooden spatulas to complete the flowers in no time.

The sweets were completed in front of our eyes and served with matcha. Since it was a hot season, we could choose cold matcha or warm matcha.

Take a picture and eat it right away! However, there is one point here.

When you see a beautiful Japanese confection in front of you, you may feel like it is a waste to eat it and end up cutting it into smaller pieces.

However, it is better to eat it in four equal parts so that it does not fall apart into small pieces. Please enjoy it with matcha.

After enjoying Japanese sweets, go shopping!

There are many kinds of Japanese sweets on display, from popular regular items to seasonal sweets, and unique sweets where you spread as much red bean paste as you like on a colorful rice cracker and cover it with another rice cracker like a sandwich.

There are also little sweets that can be eaten during a break at the hotel, so be sure to check out the showcase.
