After exploring the scenic streets of Hida Furukawa, stop by Shinmeiya to refuel on some traditional Japanese sweets. The centrally located confectioner welcomes guests with its traditional wooden exterior, miniature garden, and of course, mouthwatering snacks.
Shinmeiya’s most popular menu item is its Tempura Manju. Manju, or Japanese steamed cake, is traditionally made with a soft doughy exterior and filled with sweet red bean paste. Shinmeiya then fry their manju in a special batter leading to a crispy texture with soft filling.
Seasonal favorites include Yomogi Ankoro Mochi (mugwort rice cake; May–Aug) and Kuriyose (sweet bean paste with chestnut; Sep–Nov)
Those with a sweet tooth should check out Shinmeiya’s unique and delicious offerings!
