Benimo Baum Cake –Okinawan happiness in the mouth

If there was one unique omiyage, to bring back from a trip to Naha, Fuigiya’s award-winning Benimo Baum Cake is it.

 Benimo Baum 1
Even if you are no fan of Baumkuchen (German layered cake) in general, prepare to be converted. The purple sweet potato gives this cake a particular moisture and sweetness that cannot be matched by any other flavor offering. Oh… and the icing is to die for. Why take our word for it, you can sample it for free in Fugiya’s shop and decide for yourself!

Benimo Baum 2
All of cakes at FUKUGIYA Baum Cake Factory are packaged beautifully and guaranteed to impress, even as a gift to an Okianwan. The Benimo Cake only comes in a 14cm size and costs ¥1,400 (and worth every bite!)

Option 1: At Kokusai Dori (International Street) Naha
〒900-0015 那覇市久茂地3-29-67    Tel. 098-863-8006   Open 10am-10pm
The flagship store can be found on the Kencho (Naha City Office) end of this very long street. It’s about a 5 min walk from the Kencho-mae Monorail Station. Keep left as you walk down Kokusai dori (with your back to the kencho). After the first set of traffic lights, it’ll be the 5th  building on your left. Its easy to miss, however the shop-front is unique – with a baker working in the window.

Option 2: At Naha Airport  (Domestic Terminal 2)
The Departures Lobby (on 2F) boasts a huge offering of Omiyage stalls and shops. Fugiya has it’s own store here, albeit easy to miss.
To find it, head left towards Departure Gates A (security check) and you will spot it on the left hand side as you approach the escalator. Do the taste test and see for yourself!
If you can’t afford that trip to Okinawa, you can still taste the sunshine.
