In front of Kanda Myoujin, “Amano-ya” was established in 170 years ago. They merchandise Japanese traditional Koji (Molted rice) products such as Amazake, Natto, and Miso. Here is one of the Japanese historical places near Akihabara.
There is also café space that you can have a rest called “Myoujin no Chaya,” and many people drop in there after worship at Kanda Myoujin and enjoy healthy Japanese sweets.
The atmosphere is Japanese old age. Somewhere nostalgic.
The most popular menu of Amano-ya is homemade Amazake which is a sweet drink made by molted rice. There is Tsuchimuro (basement) for making Amazake.
Even its name is Sake, actually it is non-alcoholic.
The staff said, “also non-sugar too. Healthy and natural sweetened Amazake is good for health and beauty care.” You can try Miso which is made in same Tsuchimuro with Amazake.
Also Anmitsu and Warabi-mochi are Japanese popular sweets.
Anmitsu; agar, fruits, bean past, rice cakes, vanilla ice cream, with brown sugar syrup
Warabi-mochi; starch dumplings with bean powder and brown sugar syrup
You can buy Amazake, Natto, Miso, and Japanese pickles as a souvenir.
