The Nishiki store opened around 1980 as a retail store. Production is done at the main store, which takes pride in making fu by hand without relying on machines.

Nishiki Murasaki

“The roots of this restaurant lie in an oshiruko (sweet bean soup) and noodle store started by my father around 1945. I am committed to delivering the best-tasting food by cherishing the spirit of dedication that was taught to me by my father,” says the owner of Nishiki Murasaki. Drawing on his own experience working at a confectionery store, he now focuses on peanuts, Kyoto sweets, and old-fashioned Japanese sweets. “Every morning we purchase the highest grade peanuts from Enshu (Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture), which are freshly roasted, and only enough for that day's sales.”
