Momiji Manjū

The key to good Japanese confections is in the sweet red bean paste (an): committed to quality an ingredients down to our water source

Our momiji manjū cake is shaped like a maple leaf, the Hiroshima prefectural flower and tree. We’ve taken our signature sweet red bean paste made with carefully selected red beans from Tokachi in Hokkaido, and spring water from Hiurayama, and baked it inside a light and fluffy but still moist and tender sponge cake. Enjoy the simple charms of our perfectly sweetened momiji manjū.

Momiji Manjū (smooth red bean paste)

The taste you expect from our light purple smooth red bean paste

Fujiiya has a proud history of over 90 years. Our momiji manjū are made with red beans from Hokkaido: we remove the outer skin from the beans before simmering and then strain them through a fine mesh to turn them into a pure paste. Light purple in color, our signature red bean paste comes from ensuring that not too much of the inner red bean skin is removed, preserving the natural flavors of the beans. The cake batter is made with fresh eggs from nearby local farms, and is baked in perfect balance with the red bean paste. The mellow sweetness of our red bean paste inside a fluffy cake: this is the traditional taste that our company will continue to create and preserve.

New Tale of the Heike (Shin-Heike Monogatari)

Picture of Shin-Heike Monogatari

An elegant east-meets-west hybrid confection

Since its marketing in 1971 as a unique confection made of baumkuchen filled with sweet red bean paste, Shin-Heike Monogatari has become a nationally acclaimed hit. The visible rings where the confection has been cut represent the 12-layered ceremonial kimono of court ladies, and each box contains a mix of red bean paste and white bean paste fillings to represent two historical warring clans, the Taira and the Minamoto (also known as Heike and Genji): having both clans together in one box is our way of symbolizing peace. Refined sweet red bean paste meets light and luscious baumkuchen to create an elegant confection reminiscent of the masterpiece New Tale of the Heike (Shin-Heike Monogatari) by literary master Eiji Yoshikawa.
