A novel pudding with a refreshing aftertaste combines Japanese and Western elements.

Ichijoji Nakatani

A long-established Japanese-style confection store in a building designed in the image of a traditional Kyoto townhouse. The third-generation heir and his patissier wife created the Soymilk pudding 10 years ago from a desire to make sweets that combine Japanese and Western flavors and ingredients. It has become the store’s specialty. Silky green tea tiramisu is also popular, and orders are rushing in.

Soymilk pudding (410 yen each). The subtle seasoning by dark molasses is used in both products, which brings out a refreshing aftertaste in the sweetness. The cup with a cute rabbit illustration can be reused as a teacup after eating.

Traditional Japanese-style confections such as refined Japanese sugar are also displayed. There is a cafe space built using carved wooden panels and partitions made of ship timber at the end of the store, which has a nostalgic atmosphere.

Cakes are arranged in the showcase. This shop is notable in that you can compare Japanese-style confections and Western-style cakes in the same place.
