Mitsuwa Marketplace will be holding its annual summer event unveiling special Japanese foods for a limited time. Amongst the rare and delicious offerings to be sold are seven kinds of Japanese sweets and other style sweets from Kobe Fugetsudo. Some of the types include Kashiwa mochi, Kobe castella, Kobe chiffon cake, Kobe roll cake and Rokko cheese cake. They are all premium sweets made from the highest quality ingredients and carefully baked to a perfect finish.
Ever since its establishment, Kobe Fugetsudo has been known for its combination of Japanese and Western confectionery. Based on the company’s concept of: “The deliverance of sweets to satisfy our customers will continue from one era to another,” Kobe Fugetsudo intends to expand the production of its sweets by utilizing the “Wa,” or Japanese ingredients and technique, along with the “Yo,” or Western sense of colorful expression. Why not find out for yourself just how well this combination works?
