Ganyudo was founded in 1871 by a samurai warrior from the Iwamura domain (currently Iwamura town in Gifu prefecture). The warrior abandoned his samurai status, moved to Hamamatsu, and became a master of a sweets shop. The shop is named after this warrior’s old domain, which can also be read as Ganyu.
The second master of the shop didn’t have a child to take over the
business. Thus, he adopted the third master and this master
completed the unique flavor of our sweets that has been carefully passed on through the forth generation to the current fifth master.
What the third master particularly emphasized in his style was the concept of “morning fresh sweets”,
making them in the morning for enjoying the same day.

We sincerely hope the customers enjoy our fresh, handmade,
sweets made from our heart. This traditional recipe has a timeless taste inherited from past generations and lasting until now. In 2004 we opened a café in the shop, so customers can enjoy eating kudzu starch noodles, or seasonal treats such as shaved ice in the summer and sweet red bean soup in the winter.
Please come by the café and enjoy our seasonal selections along with other sweets.
