NOKOGIRIYAMA BAUMKUCHEN

Fuyokankokaihatsu Co.,Ltd(Chiba)

Handmade sweet originating from the Boso Peninsula that conveys local charm through its rich flavor

Mount Nokogiri (literally “saw mountain”), is located on Boso Peninsula, Chiba Prefecture, and has a long history of producing Boshu stones. It is also known for its great lookout points at the remnants of stone quarries. The mountain is now a popular destination with international tourists, too. NOKOGIRIYAMA BAUMKUCHEN was produced in hope of offering a sweet cake unique to the region — the mountain’s beautiful lines created by the layers in the rock resemble a baumkuchen in appearance. Among the well-selected local ingredients are fresh eggs produced in Kimizu, characterized by their rich taste and milk from Miyoshi-mura in Minami-Boso, the place of origin of dairy farming in Japan. The production is carried out at a factory near the Mount Nokogori. It is very filling and the subdued sweetness will put a smile on your face. NOKOGIRIYAMA BAUMKUCHEN is a cake that conveys Chiba’s history and great sights to the world.
