I bought Matsukaze. It's similar to a thick steamed bread (castella?), but I thought it was an independent Japanese sweet that was different from the others. The top is sweet and salty miso...it's like amanatto and the sesame seeds are a nice accent. Those who are tired of Kyoto souvenirs such as raw Yatsuhashi and matcha flavored sweets! I think it would be a good idea to make this a souvenir for your hometown! (The expiry date is 5 days including the day)

At first glance, it looks like castella, but Shino Miso Matsufu has a sticky, sweet dough with a lingering miso flavor and salty taste.
The black grains are Daitokuji natto, and while I was wondering if they had a unique fermented flavor, I found myself wanting another piece.

I finished it after tea and after taking a bath.
Founded in the Edo period. It feels like it was made with great care.
