Enoshima Pudding is the first pudding store that opened in the area near Enoshima Station. It was formally launched last March 8 by Nihon Seibaku, a long-established food company that processes barley into fine wheat.
Enoshima Pudding is located along Subana Street, which stretches from Enoshima Electric Railway Enoshima Station to Enoshima Bridge.
The store is known for using mugikogashi (parched barley flour) in their puddings. This ingredient, in fact, is a great match for dairy products and is also becoming a popular superfood. The aromatic barley flour, combined with the rich and smooth pudding, is enough to leave you wanting more.
The casual ambiance of the store makes for the perfect resting place after strolling around Enoshima.
At the shop, you can enjoy five kinds of pudding as well as Soft Serve Ice Cream "Pudding" (¥380).
A millstone, stationed inside the store, grinds all the mugikogashi used for the shop's puddings and soft-serve ice cream. In addition to this, the freshly-ground mugikogashi is also packaged and sold as Ishiusubiki Mugikogashi (stone-ground oats) for ¥280. Decaffeinated barley tea packs called Baisen Omugi Orzo (¥300 for 7-piece pack) are also sold at the store.
The shop's millstone is placed inside a glass partition.
Roasted barley is also powderized using the millstone, too. The shop mixes the freshly-ground mugikogashi with whipped cream, made with plenty of egg yolks, milk fat contents, and a milk-based solution to create their puddings.
Below is Enoshima Pudding’s top 3 best-selling products:
Soft Serve Ice Cream
The Soft Serve Ice Cream "Pudding" has a rich pudding flavor.
The Soft Serve Ice Cream "Pudding" (¥380) consists of soft serve mixed with Enoshima Pudding. Caramel sauce is drizzled over the ice cream to achieve that bittersweet taste. This menu item also has the texture of a chilled pudding.
Furthermore, the shop also offers Soft Serve Ice Cream “Mugikogashi” (¥380), an aromatic soft serve made with plenty of freshly ground mugikogashi. This dessert tastes like nothing you’ve ever had before.
Enoshima Pudding Orzo

The Enoshima Pudding Orzo (¥400) is delicious orzo jelly, made with deeply-roasted barley, on top of Enoshima Pudding. If you mix the smooth jelly and creamy pudding together, you'll get a refreshing aftertaste. We recommend you try the bigger Lighthouse Pudding Orzo (¥600) as well.
Enoshima Pudding & Enoshima Pudding Retro
The Enoshima Pudding (center) and Enoshima Pudding Retro (right) both have the right creaminess and texture.
Carefully selected egg yolks are used to achieve the smooth texture and rich, milky flavor of the Enoshima Pudding (¥380). The light flavor of the cream is a great contrast to the aromatic mugikogashi flavor. Boiled sweetened black soybeans also add an accent to the dessert.
On the other hand, the Enoshima Pudding Retro (¥380) has a harder texture compared to the regular Enoshima Pudding. It is famous for its sophisticated flavor made using mascarpone.
The shop also has the Lighthouse Pudding (left, ¥600) which is 150 cc of Enoshima Pudding inside a bottle designed after the Enoshima lighthouse.
With its cute bottle packaging and delicious, creamy taste, there's no doubt that Enoshima Pudding will become a favorite pasalubong item from the island. The best part? You won't even feel guilty indulging in the shop's desserts since they all contain superfoods. Make sure to drop by during your trip!
