Soka Senbei Garden草加せんべいの庭
Senbei (rice crackers) is a popular snack all over Japan, but one particularly popular senbei is the Soka Senbei, a specialty of Soka City in Saitama Prefecture. Soka City is known as the birthplace of senbei and is probably the best place to eat them. "Soka Senbei Garden" is a theme park for rice crackers in Soka City. There is a rice cracker sales corner indoors, and you can eat Soka Senbei soft serve ice cream and experience hand-baking rice crackers at the cafe outside. You can also carefully cook the senbei one by one on your own gas stove in an outdoor undercover area.
