Description

Bunmeido was established in 1900 in Nagasaki and built up a strong reputation among customers with its craftsmanship and quality products, centered on its famous Castella (sponge cake). Yokohama Bunmeido was created when Bunmeido moved to Yokohama from its original location in Nagasaki, establishing its flagship store in Isezakichō, Yokohama .
Eggs, flour, and sugar are the main ingredients in Castella. The crisp texture of granulated sugar and a moist, mellow sweetness are combined in a beautiful golden-brown pastry that can only be created by the hands of a skilled craftsman. Castella has a long history. It is said that it traces its origin back to Spain in the 3rd century BC, where a confection called “bizcocho” (‘sponge cake’ in Spanish) was made. Castella was later brought to Japan through Dejima in Nagasaki, which was bustling with activity at the time as the only port in Japan open to the outside world. Its method of creation changed over time to fit Japanese tastes, and soon spread throughout the whole country. Thus, modern-day Castella can be thought of as a work of culinary art whose flavor Bunmeido has studied and refined over many years. However, our work is far from over. We at Bunmeido continue to strive every day in our pursuit of the perfect flavor.
