Love the castella cake. Light and spongy. There were different flavours to choose from, e.g. chocolate, matcha, honey. We brought some home to give away to friends and family as souvenirs and they were a hit. In fact, I regretted not getting more for myself. They're great for breakfast or dessert!

Nicely packaged castellas, but a tad too sweet. This shop has been in business for a long time and it's just close by Dejima Wharf, Comfort Hotel.

Nagasaki has unique regional food. Kasutera cake is the one of them and this brand Bunmeido is regarded as one of the best. Shopping the cake at this headquarter building make your shopping more special. You could buy this brand's cake anywhere in Japan to be honest, but this shop's building is very special. The beauty of architecture is something... More

Castella (カステラ) is the famous souvenir in Nagasaki. It is lucky that we found this Bunneidou main store near the bus terminal in Nagasaki. The castella is very delicious and soft, but not too sweet. We bought the original flavor and the macha flavor. It is a very good confectionery with tea and coffee on the weekend afternoon!

You can find castella cake all over Nagasaki or even in other part of Kyushu but this is THE ONE. Nice taste and make an excellent gift to bring back to US (no complaint from custom which is a blessing!) Besides, when you walk in, the staff will offer you cake sample with tea on a tray.

Bunmeido shops could be found all over Japan and products on sale in numerous outlets, supermarkets and airport duty-free shops. Well, visiting the main shop was quite an experience. Once we entered the shop, sales ladies started setting up coffee table with cold tea, refreshing towels and sampler of its famous Nagasaki Castella. A kind of service which I had... More
