Main shop in Nihonbashi
Eitaro Sohonpo has operated a confectionery at the foot of the Nihonbashi since the Edo era. The shop of course sells Eitaro’s original products such as Umeboshi-Ame (pickled plum candy), Amananatto (made from sweetened beans), and Tamadare (sweets made with wasabi), and the brands focus on the themes of candy, health, and souvenirs from Tokyo.
Eitaro Sohonpo has 5 brands. In addition to the Eitaro brand that people have been familiar with since the Edo era, there is also Ameya Eitaro, Nihonbashi Eitaro, Karada ni Eitaro, and Tokyo Peasen. These brands have unique and diverse products that have been created to reflect the times.
Eitaro confidently recommends these for gifts. We can prepare Eitaro’s main products, such as Kintsuba (sweet bean paste in a thin wheat skin) and Anmitsu (sweet bean paste and fruit), in packaging suitable to be given as a gift. Please consider purchasing these as gifts on a special occasion.
Unbaked sweets zone
In the Edo era, our shop got its start as a stand on the street at the foot of the Nihonbashi, where it became a popular spot that sold unbaked sweets like kintsuba and daifuku. In addition to our main unbaked sweets like Kintsuba and Kuromame Daifuku (black soybean mochi), we also have different colorful unbaked sweets in each season.
Demonstrations by artisans
In our demonstration corner, we reproduce the flavors that became familiar in the Nihonbashi fish market in the Edo era. Kintsuba, which we have made since the company was founded, are baked like they were in olden times. Kuromame Daifuku wrapped in mochi and Hanjo Dango (sweet dumplings) are some of the Eitaro products that we make at the old shop in Nihonbashi while customers watch. The artisans in the kitchen are certified as Select Certified Artisans of Japanese Sweets by the Japan Wagashi Association.
