Established in 1894, Ginza Wakamatsu has been in the business of sweets for well over 100 years. When the shop first opened, it sold shiruko (a sweet porridge made with boiled azuki beans and eaten with mochi rice cake or shiratama rice-flour dumplings), however at the beginning of the Showa era, in 1930, second-generation proprietor Hanjiro Mori combined homemade bean paste with mitsumame to create anmitsu – which soon became one of the shop's best selling sweets.
