Each year, after we complete the 7 Lucky Gods walking tour, we drop in to Kotobukidou for their divine selection of seasonal wagashi. It’s almost as much of a treat just to be in this traditional old shop as it is to eat the beautiful confectionery (almost!). Gorgeous designs and a smooth, refined, delicious taste. Recommend!!!
