A classic souvenir, "Yokan". It's a compact, long-lasting, heavy-duty and formal confectionery, but it's a little lacking in novelty.
I want to add a little playfulness while maintaining the strengths ... In such a case, we recommend "Fruit Yokan" from Ginza Sembikiya.
Fruit yokan from Ginza Sembikiya
Product released in September 2018. I bought it at the GINZA SIX store this time, but it is also available at the online shop.
The lineup consists of five types: melon, strawberry, grape, yuzu, and azuki beans. The price is 259 yen per bottle and 1,296 yen (tax included) for a set of 5 in a box.
A size of 48g (1.69oz) per bottle. In the shape of a bar, you can peel off the individual packaging and eat it as it is with one hand.
Especially rare "melon" has a noble taste with the aroma and sweetness of melon. Immerse yourself in a luxurious mood.
Sweet and sour and fragrant "strawberry" uses Tochiotome. It features a paste-like softness that can be melted by pressing with your tongue. Fruity and gorgeous taste.
"Grape" contains flesh that creates juiciness. You can enjoy the deep sweetness. It looks good as a snack for wine! The best feeling when layered with cheese or butter.
"Yuzu" has a refreshing, sweet and sour taste, and a slight bitterness. The crisp and refreshing scent is perfect for the winter climate.
"Azuki" using Hokkaido azuki beans. It's flavorful and of high quality, but it's normal. It may be interesting to compare it with the fruit taste based on the taste.
It's a long-established fruit shop, Ginza Sembikiya, and it keeps its formal height while being innovative. Unfortunately, there are no larger bottles or boxes available, but if you have the opportunity to buy a souvenir suitable for this volume, please take advantage of it.
