Within the JR Hamamatsu train station, located in the center of Hamamatsu city, is a treasure trove of souvenirs.
Eels are very popular, either in convenient vacuum-sealed packs, or in hot boxed lunches. These "Hamanako eels", from the Hamanako Fish Breeding Fishermen's Association, are completely safe so you can enjoy without any worries. The "eel kabayaki rice crackers (senbei)", supervised by the Association, also offer a delicious match of eel and pepper, produced in the town of Haruno.
"Ageshio," Japanese-style cookies made with chestnuts, raisins, and orange peels, are a long-selling product of well-established sweets stores in Hamamatsu. Perfect as snacks, or with alcohol, they can be enjoyed by the whole family. The cookies are named "Ageshio" because they are filled with wishes that, as the tide rises in Lake Hamana, the people that eat them might be filled with happiness and luck.
These mellow and light, easy to eat cheese cakes, made from the delicate combination of 3 layers of fresh sour cream, smooth cream cheese, and "High Tide" cookies, are not only popular locally in Hamamatsu, but also all over Japan.
The distinctive characteristics of these thin layered and lightly baked baumkuchen are their refined sweetness, their fluffiness, and their delicious moistness, which you can enjoy even without a drink to go along. These are the ultimate baumkuchen, born at the end of a long period of trial and error by their artisans.
This mini harmonica, with its illustration of Hamamatsu City's mascot character based on Tokugawa Ieyasu, "the successful Daimyo (Feudal Lord), Ieyasu-kun," is very representative of Hamamatsu City, the "City of Musical Instruments."
These cute shinkansen goods with their popping designs are perfect as souvenirs for kids who like trains.
The fish paste products of Yamasa from Toyohashi City, in the nearby prefecture of Aichi, are also very popular in Hamamatsu. The pieces that attach to this cute mobile phone strap, modeled after chikuwa, kamaboko, and date-maki fish cakes, can be freely taken off, allowing for unique and individual arrangements.
The mascot character "Hello Kitty," popular all over the world, and the "Kyorindo" drug store, centered in Hamamatsu and the west-center part of Shizuoka Prefecture, have entered into a collaboration. These are rare Hello Kitty goods, featuring the character in the roles of pharmacist, beauty staff, and managing nutritionist.
