We have focused on creating nothing but Monaka for more than 100 years.

Takara-monaka

We use the Treasure Collection as a motif. It is round and is a cute size.
When you bite into it, the mellow and fragrant aroma emitting from the meltingly smooth and well-toasted dough tickles your nostrils. From the filling wrapped inside the dough, a somewhat familiar, elegant sweetness which is enthused with the flavor of Dinagon red azuki beans from the Tokachi region spreads across your mouth. Even within the mellow texture, there is a sure presence of the azuki beans that creates an enticing overall texture making it impossible to stop eating them.
It is beloved among celebrities, Takarazuka Revue actresses, and locals in Takarazuka City as a comfort food.

We as the renowned sweet shop in Takarazuka City will continue to carry on cherishing not only our secret flavor, but also the time our customers enjoy with Takara-monaka in front of them.

What we focus on at Eirakuan

The main ingredients of the Takara Monaka are azuki beans and sugar. There is nothing else.
It is precisely because we have very few ingredients that the quality of each ingredient and our ability to bring out the best from these ingredients have such a huge impact on the taste and texture.
We continue to select the finest ingredients and find new ways of bringing out the best from them. This is how we protect our signature taste.
We only use domestic glutinous rice in our dough, so it is safe for people with wheat allergies.

Carefully selected ingredients

We use 100% Dainagon azuki beans from Tokachi, Hokkaido for our azuki beans.
We do not have single recipe for cooking the azuki beans. Using our five senses and depending on the season, the weather, and the condition of the azuki beans, we cook them differently to keep the taste consistent.
We are proud of the deep and unique taste, elegant sweetness and smooth yet grainy texture of the Dainagon azuki beans.
