I love Toraya yokan for its meticulous packaging and meticulous taste. What is yokan? A thick jellied dessert made of red bean paste, agar, and sugar. Very sweet, perfect with a cup of Japanese tea. The particular variety I had was named 夜の梅 (night plum), though there are other yokan varities available in store and on Toraya website. For more information on Toraya, read my post on Toraya monaka.
