神戸には風月堂他洋菓子の有名店が多い。中でも風月堂は独自のお菓子作りで有名で神戸を代表する洋菓子店でありその歴史を伝統ある元町商店街で展開している。 more »In Kobe, there are many famous shops of Fugetsudo and other confectionery. In particular, Fugetsudo is famous for its unique sweets making and is one of Kobe's leading confectionery shops, and its history is being developed in the traditional Motomachi Shopping Street.
Small museum adjacent to famous Kobe confectionary shop in Motomachi shopping arcade. Displays of photographs, technology and equipment used in former days. Free entry. Explanatory signs only in Japanese, which is unfortunate, since this famous company could share important history of it's existence in Kobe.
I got lespoir and Petit gauffle when I entered. And you can see the city of Kobe in the beginning of the Showa era made of maple and pine marzipan made with sugar. (Of course, this is not allowed to eat.) It is also possible to know the history of the Can and the Fugetsu ADO with more than 300 kinds of art goods. There is a rare can, too. (The gorful in the can of the mint is a pattern of five yen ball and ten yen ball.) It seems to be able to make the original can with more than 100. It's good for wedding favors and corporate souvenirs.
