White bean paste made from sugar beans cooked in our store is wrapped in gouhi and covered with the highest quality sugar “Wasanbon sugar” and green tea. The full-bodied sweetness that unravels the moment you put it in your mouth and the lightly scented matcha are the reasons for its popularity.
The use of carefully selected ingredients makes it possible to bring out an elegant sweetness with a strong presence.
It goes well with matcha, coffee, and tea.
Origin of the name
The name of Hikone’s famous confectionary “Urare-gi” is derived from “Umoreginoya”, a wretched house where the 13th lord of Hikone Castle, Naosuke Ii, spent his younger days. Our store was trusted by the Ii family, the lords of Hikone, and as the official supplier of the Ii family, we also handled confectionaries as gifts for other families.
