The Hakata Torimon has been made by the company Meigetsudo since 1993. It is prepared using a traditional manju recipe. The center of the Hakata Torimon is made with a mixture of sweet white bean paste.
Several options are available as a gift, or to indulge in yourself. From boxes of 5 to 40, the range is wide and meet all budgets.
Popularized by manga
The popularity of this cake is also down to good adverts. They depict the characters and creator of a popular manga in Japan - Hakatakko Junjo ("The innocent Hakatan").
