Title: “Advertisement” Confectionery Shop Personality: Murakami Ryuji
Now, at this time we’re pleased to introduce Matsuya, located in Yorozumachi, which was a purveyor to the Shimabara domain*1. Well, although this confectionery shop has a long history, they are developing new products too. Um, in such, well, how the prior history and know-how of Matsuya are utilized will appear in Christmas cakes in the coming season. Well, the pictures are featured on page 24 of the Moppara Shimabara magazine, and there are things such as mini cream puff cakes and fromage blanc*3; it’s really a charming appearance. Looks great. The cakes are enjoyable, not just by eating them, but, um, by appearance too. They are looking forward to your reservations, too. Please make them as soon as possible, please. For those who have a membership to Club Moppara Shimabara or make a purchase of 1000 yen or more, there is either a Ganba stamp*4 or candy present. They are open from 9am to 9pm. For more details, please contact them by phone. 62-2556, that’s 62-2556.

Notes: Japanese Grammar and Vocabulary

1. 「はん」 is a historical term for the estate of a warrior. 「よう菓子かしつかさ」 is also a historical term. They intentionally use these phrases in order to show the proven quality.

2. This 「これ」 does not have a particular meaning. You can consider this a filler phrase.

3. They pronounced “fromage” as 「フレマージュ」 in Katakana, but it is also sometimes pronounced 「フロマージュ」.

4. This is kind of a reward card. Customers can exchange Ganba stamps for something beneficial.
