After our shirasu don lunch, we walked along komachi-dori for gift shopping. I had spotted a sweet potato sweets shop when we headed to the restaurant and immediately stepped in the second time we passed. They had a few sweet potato based snacks and sweets as well as soft serve. I debated about the matcha and purple sweet potato twist but decided on only purple sweet potato. And of course it was delicious!

Unfortunately, Kamakura is a popular field trip destination so we were walking along the narrow street with a bunch of middle schoolers and high schoolers. We managed to buy a few food gifts to bring home though. They say Kamakura is kind of like Kyoto but I think my foodie partner and I preferred Kyoto much more. We ended up not staying very long after the gift shopping and headed back to Tokyo.


しらす丼を食べ終え、小町通りでお土産探しに行きました。お昼に向かう時、サツマイモのお菓子とアイスの店を見かけたので、二度目に通り過ぎた時は速攻アイスを買いました。サツマイモ系の和菓子と数種類のソフトクリームがありました。抹茶紫芋のツィストで迷ったけど、最終的には紫芋だけを選びました。もちろん美味しかったです。

鎌倉は修学旅行で人気だから、小町通りは中高生で賑やか。でもなんとかお土産は買えました。鎌倉は京都に似てるとも言われるけど、私たちはやっぱり京都の方が好きですね。お土産探しが終わったら、長居せず東京に戻りました。
