 Kamehiroyasu Confectionery Shop

Without the noren, this would appear just like any other machiya townhouse, but the lovely calligraphy on the curtain which reads "Kyoto confectionery" would lead one to believe that this is a venerable vendor.

Kamehiroyasu, founded in 1915, is a specialty shop selling higashi, the powdery sugar-based sweets that are usually shaped in the figure of leaves and flowers or other objects evocative of the seasons. Beautiful to the eyes as well as to the taste buds.
