“Yuzu Kohaku”

The transparent appearance symbolizes the clear current of the Kamo River, and the piece of Yuzu peel in the body represents the sunshine glittering on water surface and waterweed dancing in flowing water.  Thus “Yuzi Kohaku” is the Japanese sweet expressing the beauty of the Kamo River.  We expect you will enjoy the fresh fragrance of Yuzu juice and the delicate sweetness which never makes you wearied.

The Assorted “Hanakazura

There are two sorts of “Hanakazura” (“Hanakazura” literary means “flowered vine”), the Kohaku sweet representing the appearance of an old stone wall with flowers of a vine symbolized by the brightness of Kohaku.  One of them is “Hanakazura (with large adzuki beans)” and the other is “Hanakazura (with white pea beans)”.

The sweet large adzuki beans and light-tasted white pea beans both produced in Hokkaido were cooked and filled into Kohaku.  We would recommend the assorted “Hanakazura (with large adzuki beans/white pea beans)” which you can enjoy two Kohaku sweets.

The sweet received “the Award from the Grand Master of Chado (the tea ceremony) of the Urasenke”, at the 23rd National Confectionery Exposition.

Hanakazura (with large adzuki beans)

“Hanakazura (with large adzuki beans)” (“Hanakazura” literary means “flowered vine”) is the Kohaku sweet containing large adzuki beans representing the appearance of an old stone wall.  The brightness of Kohaku symbolizes the flowers of a vine on the stone wall.  The design has come from a scene glanced on a street in Kyoto.  The large adzuki beans produced in Hokkaido were cooked soft and sweetened, and tightly filled in Kohaku to be finished into an excellent sweet.

The sweet received “the Award from the Grand Master of Chado (the tea ceremony) of the Urasenke”, at the 23rd National Confectionery Exposition, and also received “the Gold Award” of Monde Selection in 2009.

Uji-Kintoki Kohaku

“Uji-Kintoki Kohaku” (“Kintoki” means sweetened beans) is made of Kohaku flavored with powdered green tea produced at Uji, in which softly cooked large adzuki beans from Hokkaido are filled.  We have found the best harmony of the sweetness of the adzuki beans and the fresh taste and bitterness of powdered green tea to make up the delicious sweet.  Would you please try the excellent combination of the three tastes and the texture of the adzuki beans?

The sweet received “the Award from the Grand Master of Chado (the tea ceremony) of the Urasenke”, at the 23rd National Confectionery Exposition.

Hanakasumi-no Utage

In spring, the distant view of bloomy cherries seems white mist covering there.  “Hanakasumi” is the Japanese word describing such scene, after which the sweet “Hanakasumi-no Utage” (literary means a party under misty cherry blossoms) has been named.

Salted cherry blossoms were carefully cooked down to get the extract, which was used with a bit of powdered cherry leaves in order to flavor the sweet.  The thin sugar dress on the Kohaku colored in pale pink resembling cherry blossoms represents the beauty of spring season seen for a moment.

Kaki Kohaku

An old saying tells “When persimmon fruits ripen red, doctors turn pale.”  It means persimmon fruits are rich in nutrients.  We carefully flavored “Kaki Kohaku” with the paste of persimmon fruits produced in Japan.  Our “Kaki Kohaku” is getting red at the same time as persimmon fruits ripening in autumn.

Satsumaimo Kohaku

The sweet potatoes from Kyushu were diced and cooked moist to optimize their sweetness.  The bright yellow sweet potato dices in Kohaku make enjoyable appearance.

The soft and rich taste of the sweet potato and the delicate sweetness and slightly resilient texture of Kohaku are the essence of “Satsumaimo Kohaku”.  We hope you will enjoy the different textures and sweetness combined in the sweet.

Yumekodachi

“Yumekodachi” (literary means “dreamy trees”) is made by cutting Kohaku of delicate taste flavored with apple juice, grape juice or orange juice into thin triangle pieces and powdering the surface with sugar to lightly dry. The careful work refines the taste and appearance of the sweet. The quality of “Yumekodachi” has been proved by the fact that the sweet got the honor of being purchased by the Emperor. (The purchase by the Emperor is the greater honor than the presentation to the Emperor.)
The sweet received “the Award from the Minister of Welfare” at the 23rd National Confectionery Exposition in 1998.
