Thank you for visiting our website!
Since we believe that you may experience different cultures and customs through sweets, we decided to create a webpage in English. We hope that you get some ideas of Japanese cakes.
Japanese people really enjoy the four seasons and love to feel connected to nature. To incorporate the seasons into our products, we use seasonal flowers, nuts, berries, and rice as ingredients and wrap some cakes with natural leaves.
We will create some more pages in English, so please check them out!
The Japanese have warm food while it's still warm and cold food while cold. That's a part of the Japanese culture. We introduce two Japanese cakes. You may feel "cool and cold" at a glance.
Left: This is called Kudzukiri (arrowroot starch noodles) with brown sugar syrup. It is sweet itself and red beans are used to give it an extra rich flavor. Cool it down with a few ice cubes right before eating it.
Right: This is Kudzukiri with plum sugar syrup. There's a sweetened plum inside. Cool it down with a few ice cubes right before having it as well.
What is Kudzu? Kudzu is starch from the root of kudzu plant which is perennial. It is traditionally used in Japanese cuisine, mainly for various types of desserts. Kudzu is the most expensive ingredients for Japanese cakes.
