スライド1.jpg

¥1,100 


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.

We grate fresh yuzu skin and squeeze its juice for seasoning.

Because we use plenty of yuzu, the aroma of this yokan is different!

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

  1. Hold the cut end and pull it softly to your direction.
  2. Tear it to the right.
  3. 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.
