Bitter orange yokan(daidai)
It’s a fruit in tangerine species, which has most harvest amount in Japan here in our Atami city!
During winter, the fruit turns to “daidai (orange) color” and then goes back to green without falling from the tree.
Then, it turns back to orange color again next year. It is believed to bring success, and is used as decoration on New Year’s rice cake or New Year’s door decoration.
With is strong aroma and refreshing taste, we recommend you to cool it before eating.
Please enjoy this with Japanese tea, coffee or black tea as you like.

We grate fresh yuzu skin and squeeze its juice for seasoning.
Because we use plenty of yuzu, the aroma of this yokan is different!
For those of you who know and don’t know yuzu, please give this a try!

This yokan uses green tea powder from Japan’s number one tea production center, Shizuoka prefecture.
We use not extracted green tea but hand-milled green tea powder, therefore you can enjoy the rich flavor of green tea.

What is “YOKAN”?
It is a Japanese traditional sweet, made by boiling bean paste (red beans) with sugar then harden with agar.
1. No use of eggs nor oil, which makes it very healthy! Recommended for those on diet.
2. It is a sweet with dietary fiber.
3. A hand-made sweet, made in Japan.
What kind of taste?
It contains sweet taste of red beans.
Each flavor of yohkan has different taste, so you should try the flavor you fancy!
How to eat?
In Japan, we usually cut yohkan into bite size and eat it just like that…
But you can add yohkan in yogurt or on cracker. It even goes well with whisky!
How to open
Hold the cut end and pull it softly to your direction.
Tear it to the right.
Cut the amount you want, then wrap the rest with plastic wrap and keep in refrigerator.
Be careful not to push from above or pull yohkan out of the bag, because the layer and texture of yohkan might change.
