Ryoguchiya-Korekiyo(両口屋是清)

About Ryoguchiya

The Ryoguchiya-Korekiyo was founded in 1634 by Saruya Saburouemon to serve as the official confectioner for the Owari Feudal Domain.
Later, the master of the Ryoguchiya garnered the favor of Tokugawa Mitsutomo, the second-generation lord of Owari, who granted him the gift of a signboard inscribed in his very own hand, reading “Confectioner Ryoguchiya-Korekiyo.” For some three hundred eighty years the Ryoguchiya-Korekiyo has devoted itself solely to the preparation of Japanese confectionaries. Combining the very finest ingredients with the highest expertise, Ryoguchiya-korekiyo strives every day to fulfill our most earnest desire-to prepare Japanese confectionaries that bring joy to our customers.

The history of "Tabi Makura" still continues today.

This mild confection consists of sweetened bean paste wrapped in wafers made of eggs. It depicts the landscape of the surrounding mountains, and the design alludes to the changing seasons. We hope you will sense the changes of the four seasons through this confection. We are proud to include it in our lineup.

“Sennari”

"Sennari", with a history dating from pre-war times, is a confection with Hideyoshi Toyotomi's "Uma-jirushi" (horse insignia) stamped on its soft castella sponge cake. The name was taken from Hideyoshi's uma-jirushi known as the "Sennari Hyoutan", a type of vegetable shaped like a gourd. There are three types available: Soft baked bean paste using dainagon beans, green tea flavor using Nishio's green tea, and red-colored cooked white beans.This confection, a staple of Nagoya, gives off a sense of nostalgia.
