Map Panorama Collection Movie Collection
Many of Matsue's traditional Japanese sweets are famous nationwide. Together with Kanazawa's Choseiden and Nagaoka's Koshi no Yuki, Matsue's Yamakawa is known as one of the three great "brand name" sweets. Wakakusa and Natane no Sato are two of the brands preferred by the tea master Lord Fumai and have been passed down to the present day. Such a diversity of sweets is to be expected in this region where tea ceremony is so popular.
