KITAKATA | The Okuya Peanut Factory Shop is a sweet shop that sells a variety of local peanut based and other delicacies. The processing of peanuts and creation of various peanut-based foods was once an important part of Kitakata’s economy, but was replaced with various manufacturing industries over the years. With manufacturing in the area declining, several businesses are trying to bring back some of the traditional industries of the area, and Okuya is one of them.
Okuya is famous for its Royal Peanut soft serve ice-cream, which uses locally grown peanuts to create a vibrant, creamy ice-cream that’s every bit as delicious as you imagine. Traditional peanut cakes are also delicious, and there’s an assortment of fresh peanuts and various other snacks to enjoy while you wait, or buy to take away. Think things like miso peanuts, Camembert covered peanuts, sweet purple flower beans, and wasabi soybeans.
