Ogura Hyakunin Isshu
A collection of Japanese poems collected over roughly 500 years from 100 poets, each poet writing one poem.
It is said that the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu was compiled in the early 13th century by Fujiwara no Teika.

The Ogura Hyakunin Isshu comprises of Japanese poems about a variety of sentiments such as the beauty of the four seasons, the elegance of nature, and the sorrows of love and life. We were moved by the feelings of the poets as they enjoyed nature and the way they cared for others, and in order to convey these emotions to our customers, we named our store Nagaoka Kyo Ogura Sanso.

Our store offers sweets based on the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu and hopes to have goen, or connections, with you, our customers.

Please feel free to stop by our store if you are nearby.
