There are so many dressers and sweets on the street, yet very few choice left to me, I'm totally not with sugar tooth.. But this one, is exactly what I would like! Fresh made, smells wonderful, so is taste! I had 2 kinds, the signature one and the cheese on, both delicious.

Every time we visit Yufuin we always buy Kinsho Croquettes. My daughter loves their Cheese Croquettes. My sons prefer their famous Kinsho Croquettes. Before you could try the croquettes you need to line-up and wait for your turn. The store is small and because it is very popular the lines are sometimes long. But it is worth lining-up. There is...

There was filming going on when I was there, so there was no queue. My son bought two and quickly.left. They were delicious. Unfortunately it was closed when we returned at about 3+ pm and couldn't try the others.

This Croquettes was so famous so there were many people lined in front of the shop. There were more people at the shop near Kinrin lake. The taste was good but not very impressive. We tried original(Kinsho) and cheese. I liked original better.

We tried the croquette with tako during the short day trip to Yufuin. The croquette was delicious especially during the winter season.

Not poor, but not good. How can I say... If you take it out and walk eating it, you can enjoy a stroll through Yufuin. In short, this croquette gives you an atmosphere of your trip. In this sense, 150 yen is not so expensive, I think.

Thank IchiroTA
