The Japanese are known for coming up with delicate and delicious desserts, not all of which are strictly traditional. In fact, on Awaji Island, an 80-year-old confectionery is currently having a lot of fun playing around with the local harvest.
Okashi-dokoro Nagatechoeido Horihata Main Store has become known for selling desserts made from rare Naturo oranges, which are raised in some parts of the island. A classic choice: Awaji Orange Sticks (1 box, 75g for ¥648), a sweet snack that is pickled for half a year with honey and coated in slightly bitter Belgium chocolate!
The shop also sells a variety of original Japanese and western sweets in the shop, such as yokan, cake. This yokan is made from Naruto orange jam, tebo bean, and agar.
Naruto Orange Yokan (big) (¥1,296)
Ibushiyaki (¥195 each)
Third-generation owner Kosuke Nagate and his wife cultivate the Naruto oranges at the farm themselves.
The Naruto Orange Shaved Ice is made using approximately four oranges.
Matcha Zenzai (¥850). The subtle sweetness of Hokkaido’s red bean spreads in the mouth.
The Cream Anmitsu (¥800) is the very definition of luxury with its seasonal fruits, agar, bean paste, and vanilla ice cream.
