Strolling along Muromachi Dori in the evening. Higashi Honganji Temple and Hanayamachi Dori in the evening, seen from Muromachi Dori.
Turned Rokkaku Dori from Muromachi Dori to the east and found Izumiya, a catering restaurant. It was a popular restaurant as a part of the local community for a long time. It was getting cold, so would continue tomorrow.
The next morning, turned Yobai Dori from Muromachi Dori to the east, found the famous old sweet shop "Imanishiken", which served Ohagi. Before 10:00 a.m., there was a long line of 30 meters, making it stand out in a residential area.
The most popular kinako (soybean flour) Ohagi was sold out early, so bought the tsubu-an. So impressed by the freshness of the texture. It tasted better as the water was good.
