YUZU Yokan

yuzu sweets in Japan

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

What is Yuzu?

One of Japanese citrus fruits which has less sourness than lemon but mild and pleasing aroma. In Japan we use yuzu to dress Japanese food and in winter we put it in bathtub and enjoy hot bath.

Matcha Yokan

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.

Hon-neri Yokan is a red bean jelly made with unsweetened red bean paste,in order to keep the taste traditional but light.
Red bean jam in bitter Orange Yokan is not only sweet but it also has a slightly bitterness from bitter orange,which gives a refreshing aftertaste to the jelly.
Traditionally,Japanese people eat Yokan just as it is.
But we also recommend you try thinly sliced Yokan on top of crackers or diced Yokan in Yogurt.
