Close to one of Tokyo’s most famous Shinto shrines, Yushima Tenjin, in the Yushima district, is Tsuruse – a relaxing oasis in today’s busy world, and home of delicious traditional Japanese confectionery since 1930.
The business, originally called “Owariya” was founded in that year by Eiji Tanabe and quickly became very popular with local people. Its name was changed to Tsuruse in 1955, and in 1993, Eiji’s son, Taiji, opened a second shop in Sendagi.
