OBUSEDO manufactures sweets with chestnuts and works on a landscape project in town to express the appeal of the “town of chestnuts.”
OBUSEDO started their confectionery business in 1890s while running a brewery from the Edo period. They have manufactured chestnut sweets such as rakugan, yokan, and shikanoko.
In 1980, OBUSEDO started a project to restructure the landscape around OBUSEDO to beautify the area. A landscape unique to Obuse that blends in with the regional nature and pastoral scenery was born.
OBUSEDO’s main shop opened in 1987, which was the last year of the project. The shop sells western and Japanese sweets utilizing chestnut red bean paste. At the restaurant attached to the shop, they offer Japanese course meals using seasonal ingredients every month.
Ajiwai Kukan, a section where the main shop is located also houses Masuichi-Ichimura Sake Brewery, Pizzeria Sunpuro (Italian cuisine), Yoritsuki Ryori Kurabu (Japanese cuisine), Café Entotsu, etc.
