Japan’s oldest Mikekado Pumpkins

These are pumpkins said to have been brought over from Portugal to the Mikekado area around 400 years ago.
In 1928 they were even offered to the Japanese Emperor as a gift. In modern times, the Mikekado Pumpkin Preservation Association makes shochu and sake with these pumpkins, and visitors can also visit local cake stores to enjoy sweets made with pumpkins. Also, during the appropriate season you can also enjoy ”Dangojiru”(Japanese soup with dumpling).
