The shop is the perfect combination of modern aesthetics and Japanese traditions.
The items are displayed on window cases and pedestals and from some distance they resemble jewelry instead of sweets.
Toyosu, the owner of “Jukka” was born as a manufacturer of rice crackers in the 1900s in Osaka. It’s been their mission, besides trying to respect the tradition, to create a new era in the rice crackers market and Jukka does a great job taking it everything to a whole new level.
Jukka is all about the caring of craftsmanship, the caring about materials, and the caring about style of Japanese food culture.
As usual, I crush hard on packaging!
Next time you’re in this area, make sure to head to Jukka to sample these delicate treats.
I’d like to thank Jukka’s staff who kindly let me shoot inside their beautiful shop… ✿ありがとう ございます!
