Romi-Unie Confiture opened in Kamakura in 2004, and moved to Kamakura high street, Komachi area, in 2015.
Our jam production concept is to make ‘Jam like sweets’, handmade at our atelier in the store everyday. There are over 40 kinds of fresh jam on the shelves.
The inspiration for our jam is taken from French pastries. One little spoon of our jam, which is handmade with combinations of seasonal fruits or with the addition of liquor and herbs, has always had the magical power to make your usual toast and yogurt utterly delicious!
Baked cakes and biscuits are also available, which are handmade with care at the in-store atelier too. Our jam and baked cakes make the perfect gift or souvenir from Kamakura.
