The following are examples of the products handled in Gunmachan-chi.
【Shichi Fuku-jin Arare】
(Rice Cracker of Seven Lucky Gods)
This charming assortment of bite-sized rice crackers comes in seven flavorful varieties, including shrimp, cheese, and aonori seaweed. Each comes individually wrapped.
(flour cracker cream sandwich)
This delightful confection is made by sandwiching fresh cream between Kosen senbei rice crackers. The light texture combined with aromatic cream has long made these snacks a Gunma favorite among people of all ages.
【Usaburo Kokeshi dolls】
Gunma takes pride in producing more kokeshi dolls than anywhere else in Japan. Unlike strictly traditional kokeshi dolls from the Tohoku region, Gunma kokeshi are known for their creative forms. Their stylish designs have caught on outside of Japan as well, and Usaburo kokeshi are now directly exported to eighteen countries in Europe and around the world.
Kiryu city has long been a bustling textile town. More recently, it has expanded its unique Kiryu-ori style of textile production beyond kimonos to neckties, card cases, and other small accessories—creating many new fans in the process.
Yakimanju are a rustic, homecooked favorite of Gunma Prefecture. Steamed buns are glazed with sweet, salty miso and grilled to create this delightfully addictive snack.
【Takasaki Daruma dolls】
Gunma produces more Daruma dolls than anywhere else in Japan. The Takasaki Daruma has crane eyebrows and a turtle mustache, both animals representing longevity in Japan (ancient legend says that cranes live for a thousand years, turtles for ten thousand). All this good luck has made Takasaki Daruma dolls popular for generations.
