It has an airy texture and slightly sweet taste.
YATSUHASHI SENBEI is famous as a traditional confection of Kyoto and has been popular for a long time.

There are several views on the origin of the name YATSUHASHI. The most prevalent theory is that YATSUHASHI is derived from the name of Yatsuhashi Kengyo (1614–1685) who is known as most famous ancestor of KOTO Japanese harp player. It is said that YATSUHASHI SENBEI was made after his death to honor this achievement.
