Salt-flavored manju, Ako's famous traditional confectionery

Ganso (originator) Harimaya created salt-flavored manju in 1853 and was a purveyor to the feudal clan of Ako.Shio-aji Manju (salt-flavored manju) is a registered trademark of Ganso Harimaya.

We add salt into the bean paste so that the sweetness and the flavor of salt will be matched in the best way, not just as a secret ingredient.
The exquisite balance of sweetness and the taste of salt matches superbly with the smooth bean paste, creating the elegant traditional taste of salt-flavored manju which is popular up to the present.
