  • 創業者…八木九三郎
  • 創業時…餅製造

「宇土と言えば小袖餅」と言われるぐらい、熊本県民はもちろん県外の人にも定着しているお菓子です。もっちりやわらかい餅の中からとろんとしたあんこがとろけだす一口サイズの小袖餅。あんこ餅のようなあんこ餅とは一味違い…不思議な食感とほどよい甘さが癖になります。江戸時代のお殿様の好奇心が由来というちょっとユニークなお菓子です。

Kosode mochi (rice cake) is very common among people living in Kumamoto prefecture as well as those who live outside of the prefecture, and it is even said that "when it comes to Uto, Kosode mochi shall not be missed out." Kosode mochi is a bite-size rice cake, and once you chew it, the creamy red bean paste comes out from inside of the sticky, soft rice cake. It looks and tastes like a normal rice cake, but it is also somewhat different. It actually becomes addictive with the intriguing texture and the right degree of sweetness. It is said that this unique confection created by a curiosity of a feudal lord in Edo era.
