270-Year Old Wagashi Shop, Tatsuno

Tatsuno Town is located near Ibo River. Tatsuno Castle is a main attraction for tourists. There is a 270-year old wagashi shop here, too. The owner was so welcoming, and even offered me a map and talked for a while about the many generations that have been producing wagashi in this place. Wagashi is a traditional Japanese confectionery.
