Okashi no Hidaka

Top choice sweets in Miyazaki

At this family-run legend, in business since the early 1950s, peruse the refrigerator case of luscious-looking Japanese and Western pastries, but order the giant nanjakō-daifuku (dumpling of sweet bean paste, strawberry, chestnut and cream cheese in a wrapper of airy mochi; ¥390). Cheese manju (dumplings; ¥175) and sweets made with local Hyūga-natsu (oranges) are other signature tastes of Miyazaki.

If time permits, staff will serve your sweet with tea right there in the store.
