New Purin Shop ‘Ise Purin no Tetsujin’ Sells Japan’s First Purin Toast

23.June.2018 | FOOD / SPOT

Oharai-machi is located in Ise, Mie Prefecture and is an 800-meter stone paved street that stretches from the Uji Bridge to the Naiku, or inner shrine of Ise Grand Shrine. The town is always bustling with tourists from all over Japan. There, a new shop by the name of Ise Purin no Tetsujin specializing in ‘purin,’ a type of Japanese custard pudding, has opened, and is selling the country’s first ever Purin Toast.

Ise Purin Toast

Price: ¥500 (Includes Tax)

 

Purin toast uses specially made bread that’s doused in liquid purin and cooked like French toast. The outside is crunchy and the inside is fluffy. When eaten with fresh cream or soft cream the flavour only gets more delicious.

Ise Purin (Smooth / Retro / Amazake)

Price: ¥390 Each (Includes Tax)

 

At the shop they use specially selected domestic ingredients together with 1kg (over ¥120,000) worth of natural vanilla beans from Madagascar to make their purin. Each is expertly handmade one by one to ensure that soft and velvety melt-in-your-mouth texture. They’re served in one of three flavours: the classic purin, a more retro purin that’s made with eggs and would ring nostalgic to some Japanese people, and a sweet sake purin. A famous pastry shop considered the creator of the classic purin helped in developing the purin at Ise Purin no Tetsujin.

The shop’s interior contains antique furniture to give it that retro feel. It’s retro, kawaii and a great new photo spot.

Customers who order a 3-pack or 6-pack of purin will receive a tote bag completely free featuring the store’s original characters.

Try the new purin toast yourself!

  • Purification Footbath Introduced at Meotoiwa Museum in Ise, Mie Prefecture

    03.May.2018 | SPOT

    In the town of Futami, located in Ise, Mie Prefecture is ISE Meotoiwa Meato Yokocho, one of the largest shopping facilities for souvenirs across the Shima Peninsula. Inside is the Meotoiwa Museum where they offer activities for tourists. They have just introduced the Misogi no Ashiyu, or ‘Purification Footbath,’ which uses seawater from Meotoiwa, Futami.

    夫婦岩ミュージアム
    Futami is a place where purification ceremonies took place at Misogi Hama, the purification beach of Futaminoura where the Meoto Iwa, or ‘Married Couple Rocks’ are located. This happened before one went to pray before the Ise Grand Shrine at a steam bath during the Edo Period, which is now next to Okitama Shrine. Additionally, in 1882, it received recognition as Japan’s first swimming area in the ocean, and bustled with members of the imperial family who used it as a health resort, including Emperor Taisho. The ocean water used in the purification footbath is normally taken from the seawater well located inside the facility. It is poured into the footbath bucket after being heated at the source of the free-flowing water.

    みそぎフィッシュ

    There’s plenty of other fun content to enjoy too, including a new purification-style fish tank, a spot to take photos themed on the Married Couple Rocks, and more!
