Very popular shop in response to a lot of TV and magazine coverage.

There are a number of shops along the side of the road on the way to Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine.

Our main product is Onigawara Monaka (sweet bean jam sandwiched between mochi wafers).

We are very particular about our ingredients, including red beans and wafers, and carefully make each product by hand.

We also offer Japanese sweets using Amaou strawberries (seasonal only) and chestnuts (seasonal only), which are specialties of Fukuoka Prefecture. You can eat sweets while walking along the streets.

Our commitment

We confidently recommend it as our best product!
The taste is very addictive and you will be able to eat two or three portions thanks to its elegant taste consisting of the exquisite sweetness of the candy along with the flavored wafers exploding in your mouth.
Homemade paste
The paste is a homemade candy that is carefully made with a lot of time and effort, using ingredients produced from Tokachi, Hokkaido Prefecture.

Special Monakadane
We carefully select glutinous rice from Mt Sefuri, Saga Prefecture for our Monakadane.

Commitment 1

Our bean paste is made of red beans produced in Tokachi, Hokkaido Prefecture. We put a lot of time and effort into carefully making it by hand in our own factory.

Commitment 2

The wafers are made of 100% glutinous rice only.

It doesn’t stick in your mouth because it doesn’t contain any unnecessary materials.

It is safe and trusted enough to use as baby food.

Commitment 3

Japan’s most highly regarded Amaou strawberries are used. We choose DX (deluxe) quality, due to its special sweetness and sheer size from Fukuoka Prefecture.
