Local specialty sweets using ingredients produced in Ako
Our store has an assortment of sweets made with Ako's salt and eggs, and other ingredients produced in the neighboring area. Our top recommendation at the moment is Banshu Ako En-musubi (bringing luck in romance, marriage and good relationships) Cookies. We had prayer performed by a shinto priest at a shrine in Ako Misaki famous for bringing good luck in en-musubi for our Ako salt (salt is also pronounced "en") and for continuance of "en-man" (good relationship). The cookies are crumbly and melt in your mouth. You will certainly be hooked by the sweet and salty taste of wasanbon sugar and salt in the cookies.
