Great biscuits sold by a local friendly elderly couple. Happened to pass by and bought the handmade fox biscuit, which was crispy and sweet and salty (understood that miso is included as an ingredient).
Also bought another packet of biscuit (sticks of white Japanese sweet wrapped with biscuit) for snacking, which was awesome!
Was in the area the next day and came back to buy more biscuits as souvenirs!

Best kitsune cookies ever! They’ve been in businesses for 80 years and for me they have perfected the taste of the cookies! I also love how the kitsune masks are traditional in design. They were very friendly and pricing is on point. Please try this place when you can! It’s a perfect place to buy something for your loved ones at home.

Photo is a painting I made of the cookies 🦊
