[kl-bogel] Yatsuhasi - the best-selling sweets in Kyoto

Learn-to-user nobody-s-fool says in his blog: When I was the first time in Japan, and we were treated to a church with green tea and traditional sweets, the first time I have, frankly, did not appreciate the taste. Over time, I had to try different kinds of sweets and many of them the first time I did not like, and then somehow I woke up to find that there was all this with pleasure. Apparently this is a matter of habit.
But there is one kind of candy that I liked the first time. This is a very well-known sweets from Kyoto. And I'm sure I'm taking them out of each trip. Although the trip is loudly told when to go to Kyoto for half an hour.

1. And I'm taking them out is not just me. According to the statistics on these "triangles" for nearly 50% of sales of traditional sweets in Kyoto. They are bought and the Japanese themselves who are traveling around the country.

2. It is not made to go somewhere on vacation or business trip and did not lead after some souvenir home, colleagues, friends or relatives. And edible "gifts" definitely in vogue. This can be explained by the fact that the Japanese have a strong interest in any of the local food. Indeed cuisine differs from region to region. And by eating more sense than that of figurines and magnets.

Foreigners are also willing to buy yatsuhasi. They have enough neutral taste, even for those who are Asian sweets in any form does not perceive.

3.Iznachalno yatsuhasi made from rice flour, sugar and cinnamon. The dough they have a soft, slightly stretched and resembles the consistency of mochi. Traditional types yatsuhasi usually made with black sesame, sweet beans or green tea. Sesame - my favorite.

4.B Kyoto we went to one store, togruyuschuyu these sweets. Do not go it was difficult. One girl stood at the entrance and offered to try to piece triangles. Standard sort of tasting. Many stores are similar. But she immediately invited into the interior shop and said that there still pouring green tea. Well give up green tea?

5.B eventually we went to the store and saw that they have a huge number of triangles filled with fruit: apples, peaches, banana with chocolate, blueberries, mango, etc. If someone can not have traditional forms of beans or green tea, this is a great compromise. Although, honestly, I can not say that this is just a chemical flavor. Not very authentic.

6.Po through the store are boxes with pieces of all tastes. As a result, we had lunch there almost as long tried all the flavors and decide what to buy this home.

And I was pleased to be able to try everything, because those tastes, which I initially put the eye, I end up not very much. Home go mango, blueberries, and something else there:)

7.Na gifts usually take the Japanese nicely packed boxes. And then we found a small pack on sale. They can be obtained even cheaper. And for the home you can buy them, if not essential packaging.

11.Pechenye sticks of dough for yatsuhasi. Those here with black sesame. But I'm not a big fan of those sticks and prefer the raw dough.

12.Tut shows that the store itself is quite spacious. Many others turn back anywhere. So the people there a long time and do not stay:)

13.Poloski raw dough for those who do not want any toppings.

14. Yatsuhasi make different manufacturers. They can be bought in many shops of Kyoto, as well as in kiosks at railway stations and airports around the Kansai region. This is great for those who defer the purchase of souvenirs at the last moment.

I always bought until this triangles from another manufacturer, but here it was difficult to walk past this store with their immodest service. Visitors crowd at them, and in the neighboring shops selling exactly the same triangles, almost no one.

15.Tut also sold powdered green tea with sugar. I already wrote how we were treated like last trip to Kyoto. During this time, my opinion has not changed - green tea with sugar is a perversion:)

16.Takzhe were sweets and green tea, but after tasting the 10 types of triangles no longer wanted nothing:)
