Among Okinawan sweets, "Chinsuko" is particularly famous.
Long ago, the royal family would eat these high class treats to celebrate.
The chinsuko of long ago were not long and thin as they are now, but cute and round.
That traditional chinsuko is being made at "Ryukyu Meika Kugani Kashi Honten".
To recreate the sweets of the palace court from the Ryukyu Dynasty era, they use, not electric, but fire ovens.
They are made by skilled hands and are not made using any preservatives.
If you come to Okinawa, why not have some traditional, round chinsuko?
