  • Dango Honpo Takahashi is a local confectionery that has been in operation since 1918. Historically is has been known for its dango (sweet rice dumplings served on a skewer). The dango are handmade fresh every day, from rice milled that very morning. Though the confectioners stick to tradition for the dango, they aren’t afraid to put innovative spin on other classic sweets. Their honten kuroi dora are a modern twist on traditional dorayaki (red bean pancakes). The pancakes are tinted black using a blend of cocoa and bamboo charcoal, and stuffed with original fillings like cream cheese and sweet coffee kanten. Visitors can enjoy Takahashi sweets paired with a cup of coffee or matcha green tea at the dine-in space towards the rear of the shop.
