Last update :

Treasuring the charm of wagashi (Japanese confections) that encapsulate the beauty of nature and the spirit of seasons in small packages, Aoki shofuan creates unparalleled delicacies. While preserving tradition, they also bring new sensibilities to the table. Their "Milk Manju Tsukigesho" consistently tops the manufacturer's best-seller list, boasting over 100 million sales. It stands firm as a signature product and a standard Osaka souvenir.

This delicacy, made by wrapping a mix of rich condensed milk and butter with a white bean paste and then baking, is characterized by its moist texture and harmonious blend of Japanese and Western flavors. The white bean paste is made by uniquely blending two types of Hokkaido white beans, "Otemou" and "Shirokaneji", and it's meticulously crafted by assessing its readiness down to the second during the cooking and steaming processes.

In collaboration with "Iemon", they have added a slightly bitter matcha flavor to create the "Iemon Tsukigesho". Additionally, a modern twist on the "Milk Manju Tsukigesho" is the "Tsukigesho Raw Sablé" - a new sensation in Western sweets.
