Kamakura, known as the site of the Kamakura Shogunate, has many shrines and temples that are well worth seeing. It is a town that is fun to stroll around. The Great Buddha of Kamakura is so famous, but do you know that there is candy of Great Buddha of Kamakura?
The Great Buddha candy with a stick is cute and fun to eat!
The Buddha-shaped candy is sold at a candy store along the road from Hase Station on the Enoden Line to Kotokuin Temple of the Great Buddha of Kamakura. It is handmade in the store, and is a simple tasting candy with no additives! Interestingly, it comes with an omikuji, which is a fortune slip. What to do is that you just read a QR code printed on the back of the candy base to draw an omikuji.
Where to buy candy of the Great Buddha?
It is an original product that can only be purchased at the three group-owned stores along the road from Hase Station on the Enoden Line to Kotokuin Temple of the Great Buddha of Kamakura: “Dagashiya Hase”, “Koyatei”, and “Nanafukuya”. There are also other candy with Kamakura themes, such as “Bussoku candy” in the shape of Buddha’s feet and “Great Buddha gummi,” so it is hard to decide what to buy.
Why don’t you buy some candy and walk to the temple before seeing that Great Buddha of Kamakura? It will be a good memory to see the real Great Buddha with candy!
