Jukka: It’s Senbei time (十火 煎餅)

 十火 (Jukka – じゅっか) is a chic little shop in Aoyama that sells senbei (煎餅- rice confectionaries).

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!

    Hi Unviersetokyo,
    Glad to find the sharing about Jukka. I’m Jocelyn from Taipei. I received a gift box of Jukka from a friend recently, and was amazed by its delicacy and deliciousness, and that is why I found here when checking for more info about Jukka (not so much info about it in English as you could imagine…).
    I believe I will visit the blog frequently and keep up the good work!

    • Hi Jocelyn, thanks a lot for your warm words. Jukka is one of the many confectionary gems Tokyo has to offer. I’m happy the information was helpful and yes you’re right, there’s not much info in English out there, so that’s one of the reasons why I started this blog. Keep coming back! I enjoy having guests from all over 🙂
