I stopped by a shop of ‘Hato Sable’ that is a very famous sable (cookies) shop in Kamakura before I left Kamakura in order to buy its folding umbrella.

The main store sells not only ‘Hato Sable’ that is the most popular pigeon shaped cookies in their shop but also their original items that are sold only at the main store in Kamakura.
