Leaving The House: Hanabishi・華菱 and Shofuen・松風園

I have been waiting for a chance to go to Hanabishi・華菱 since I saw they opened a last year. They sell incredibly beautiful daifuku with pieces or fruit and white bean paste wrapped inside. You are meant to bisect the daifuku bu cutting it with a red piece of string. The store is immaculately designed but still has a sense of fun.

They only have take-away so I went back to Shofuen・松風園 to have some tea and eat in the park. We had the honeydew melon and Muscat green grape. They sell out constantly and it’s easy to see why, they were some of the best fruit daifuku I’ve ever had, I immediately wanted to go back and try more.

Back inside at Shofuen tea house I got a sticker in celebration of Hina Matsuri・雛祭り, or Girl’s Day later in March. The house was decorated with the traditional dolls and was really special to see.
