Yatsuhashi - Best souvenir from Kyoto, Japan

Yatsuhashi a delicious Kyoto snack. Its also known as hijiri is made with cinnamon, but the cinnamon is mixed with bean paste and then folded into the hijiri to make a triangle-shape. Today, you can buy a wide variety of flavors, including matcha/green tea, chocolate, banana and black sesame. Yatsuhashi, meaning eight bridges. Nama Yatsuhashi has a soft triangle-shaped sweet, mochi-like texture and is often eaten wrapped around red bean paste or other fillings. As with all Japanese food, aesthetics is important. You can get this sweet anywhere in Kyoto whether in supermarkets, souvenir shops or markets.

Taste:8/10(Good. Soft and mochi like texture of sweet. I like it since I like sweet stuff).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. One box of 10 pieces of Nama Yutsuhashi will cost at least 530 Yen).

Try each one to determine the flavour you like most.

Most of the Yatsuhashi shops that I went provides generous amount of samples.
