Nagasaki long-established confectionery store starts mail order of “Kawatana Karin”


Founded in 1955, “Kapo Isamiya,” which has been loved by many people in Nagasaki Prefecture, will start selling online.

The first will sell “Cold Shikarintoumanju,” which is a frozen version of the popular “Karintoumanju,” which sells more than 2,000 pieces per day at stores.
It’s exaggerating to say “D2C (Direct to Consumer),” which is the current trend, but it is a new challenge for a long-established confectionery shop loved locally for 65 years. It’s not something new and glittering. However, we will deliver our products with the same desire to deliver “delicious” to many people.

Frozen Shikarin Tomanju "Kawatana Karin"

Brown sugar elegant fragrance and slightly sweet taste
Using domestically produced brown sugar luxuriously, we have brought out the scent and taste of brown sugar as much as possible by our original method that does not spare time and effort. It is a proud taste that can be brought out because I was particular about it.

Homemade bean jam that is not too sweet
The bean paste wrapped inside is a homemade bean paste that has been loved since its founding. Isamiya’s Anko is characterized by its moderate sweetness and is used in most Japanese sweets sold. Homemade bean paste has a history of Isamiya.

Crisp even when cold
By quick freezing, you can enjoy the crispy texture of freshly fried food over time. By deep-frying with the secret oil of company secret, the persistence peculiar to oil is reduced. If you store it frozen and thaw it at room temperature for 15 minutes, you can enjoy it in the best condition.

Afterglow that reaches out with another one
You can enjoy it lightly because it is chilled and eaten. When you finish eating one, you may start thawing the second one…

Hoshinoya Tokyo, a Japanese-style inn located in Otemachi, Tokyo, will again this year host the “New Year Kabuki Stay” program, a two-day and one-night stay from January 5 to 26, 2024.
For people living in Edo, one of their New Year’s pleasures was to watch Kabuki, and it was a chic way to spend the New Year. Theatrical teahouses supported this way of enjoying Kabuki.

Hoshinoya Tokyo offers a stay to celebrate the New Year with hospitality similar to the theatrical teahouses of the time.
