The famous bird cookie
Nov 2014 • Family
My colleague who has lived in Japan for a number of years that this is the must-visit shop in Kamakura. Its specialty is the thin bird cookies that it has been baking for decades. When I went there in the evening, this store at the main shopping street of the town was packed with mostly local ladies buying the cookies and other sweets. While I thought the famous cookies were tasty, to me they were just plain without filling. I found nothing particularly addictive about them, though I did purchase a box as a souvenir. I think the cookies are for those who either grew up on them and long for nostalgia or for kids who just want something to munch on.
I would not give it a miss entirely if you are in town but this is a good cookie shop that you do not need to go out of your way for.
