Candy & Snack Lane in Kawagoe

by Noriko

Kintaro Ame (a thin, long candy that has a face of a boy named Kintaro wherever it's cut vertically) is a traditional candy loved by Japanese people for a long time.  This candy shop sells a variety of candies.  You can find Kintaro-style candy that has a beautiful flower pattern on any cross section.  You can even see candy patisseries making these candies live over the glass!

My name is Noriko Nagura. I am a government-certified tour guide. I now live in Saitama. What I especially like about Saitama is Kawagoe city. Kawagoe is full of history and culture -- traditional kura-zukuri houses, Kawagoe castle, gorgeous portable shrines used at Kawagoe festival, Kita-in temple that was loved and taken care of by Ieyasu Tokugawa and Iemitsu Tokugawa, famous shoguns in Edo period (from 1603 to 1867).
