Kyoto Sweet

Do you know something about Yatsuhashi?? Yatsuhashi is a kind of Japanese confectionary and it's a very popular souvenir of Kyoto. It's made from rice flour (Jyoshinko), sugar and cinnamon. There are two types of Yatsuhashi, one is baked and another one is raw. Baked one is really crunky. Raw yatsuhashi (It's called Nama yatsuhashi) has a soft texture and there's almost all the time sweet bean paste in it. Recently, there are many many kinds of flavour of raw Yatsuhashi, for example, Japanese chestnut taste, Sweet potate taste for autumn.
There are many shops that sell Yatsuhashi on the way to Kiyomizudera temple, so please try some and buy them if you like it!! You'll like them after two or three Yatsuhashi!!
