"Minato Roman" was created as a famous confectionery that reflects the town of Niigata that prospered at the port. During the Edo period, the town of Niigata prospered as Kitamaebune sailed as a port of call for western routes such as Hokkaido and Kansai. In 1843, the area around Niigata Port became a heavenly territory and the Niigata Magistrate's Office was established. In 1854, it was designated as one of the five open ports under the Japan-US Trade Treaty, and has contributed to the development of Niigata and continues to this day. It is said that the development of Niigata Minato was the birth of Niigata's unique "Minato culture", where many people come and go in and out of Niigata along with the distribution of goods. "Minato Roman" at Maruya Main Store was created as a new famous confectionery based on traditional French confectionery, hoping for the development of Niigata with the theme of Minato. We hope you enjoy it for a long time.
