omiya yogashiten

Finally got to check out Omiya Yogashiten, they've been in business since 1884!

Their showcase is filled with all sorts of cakes and baked items.

Love their packaging!
We purchased their classic chocolate, it didn't seem to be cake but a rich dense slice of ganache covered with whipped cream and topped with a chocolate truffle, strawberry tarte with lots of strawberries and rare cheesecake (no bake cheesecake)...1944 yen (tax included)

Everything was delicious, not too sweet, though their crust was more like a cracker than a flaky pastry.

I guess with the pandemic they closed their dining area, so I look forward to eating here in the future.

We'll be back.

that's the amazing thing about Japan pastries. They look so sweet but are not.

Kat, there was enough room for a 4th item! I always tell MotH, we get 4 of whatever - 2 for you, 2 for me, and sharing is mandatory!

Take care.

One of the great things about Japanese desserts are that they usually aren't overly sweet!
