Local sweets made using bamboo shoots, a local specialty

Bamboo shoot macaroons are a local Nagaokakyo specialty, a new kind of confectionery that looks just like the bamboo shoots it uses. They won the grand prize in the local Nagaokakyo sweets competition, and local cake and tea shops in Nagaokakyo are making bamboo shoot macaroons with their store's own unique twist. Enjoy these colorful bamboo shaped confectioneries and their different aromas and textures.  You'll also find bamboo shoot flavored bean wafers, bean breads, and so on.
