Gentle and sweet taste and sourness of YUZU citrus AN bean jams and flavor of rice wafer expands in your mouth, and the contrast between unique and sticky YUZU citrus AN bean jam and crispy wafer creates a supreme texture. Of course, it goes well with Japanese Tea such as Matcha, Gyokuro and Sencha. Though YUZU citrus was planted more than 1500 years ago in Japan, its gently sour and bitter citrus taste is perfect for modern Japanese sweets. The refreshing flavor of YUZU citrus, which has been enjoyed since ancient times in Japan, is the most suitable flavor for Japanese sweets eaten in the summer.

The name Kiyomizu YUZU MONAKA after the name of Kiyomizu-temple is a product that has received high praise in Japan, which has been awarded the Grand Prize at the Japan Confectionery Expo.
The name of MONAKA originates from Japanese traditional poem which was written about 1200 years ago, describing "bright full moon reflecting on the surface of the water."
