Update date

As you may already know, Japanese sweets often express the 4 seasons and nature of Japan, and so does this “Kingyokukan” (Japanese jelly made from agar and sugar). Its transparent looks play a big role in depicting the season by adding small yokan jellies and color layers.

Ryoguchiya Korekiyo’s “Sawa no Midori” represents a clear stream flowing under the trees in the mountains. “Sawa” means “river” and “Midori” means “greenery” in Japanese. The taste is slightly sweet and you can enjoy the difference in texture between agar and yokan, and the clear jelly is filled with green, brown, pink colored yokan jelly with green maple, a feature of Japanese early summer. I can picture the refreshing scenery!
