Strawberry Juice and Rusk
I visited here aroun 11:00 on a weekday. Because fresh ingredients and good taste were served, tourists used the Bieisenka as a break spot of Biei sightseeing. A lot of visitors including overseas tourists came on that day. They served a lots of appetizing foods, and I bought a cup of Strawberry Juice of the Senkakobo and a pack of Biei-no-Rusk of the Komugikobo in those. Those were popular in particular. As for the prices, the former was JPY 360, and the latter was JPY 515.
The strawberry juice was handmade by a shop clerk in front of customers' eyes after ordering. Because syrup was used in the strawberry juice, I completely thought that it was too sweet, but it was not so. It had the sour taste, and was so good! In addition, the rusk was crunchy. The butter taste was good, and the sweetness was just right, too. Common rusk comes from bread baked twice, and the crunchy texture is a feature of the rusk, and the rusk is actually made with the rest of breads. But a perfect plant equipment for rusk was completed, so I thougt that the rest of breads was not used in the their rask. Visitors could observe the plant through a glass window from outside. Thanks for the tasty sweets!
