Renovation of “Yomeimon,” the main gate of Nikkō Tōshō-gū started 4 years ago as part of the Heisei Renovations. It reopened this year in March.

The ‘kinpaku’ or ‘gold leaf’ purin is designed around the spectacular Yomeimon. The traditional full-bodied purin is made using milk and eggs from Nikko and is on top of which sits a refreshing yet rich soft cream topped with gold leaf. The gold leaf turns it into a luxury soft cream purin. Priced at an affordable ¥500, only 10 will be sold each day.
