Confectionery called Kintsuba or Rakugan; good gifts to take home
Traditional confectionery of Kanazawa is popular as good gifts to take home for foreign countries. The confectionery representing Kaga or Kanazawa is available in a small portion such as boxed gifts or assorted packages which can be kept at room temperature. To name a few, there is a Kintsuba or sweet bean jelly wrapped by very thin wheat dough, through which you can see tightly packed big beans. And a Kaga Rakugan, whose classical designs of flowers and leaves or family crests are shaped in a wooden mold, is an elegant rice-flour cake. Likewise, you can find a variety of superb confectionery full of Kaga’s originality, while feeling somewhat Kyoto’s atmosphere.
