(This article is generated by auto AI translator.)

Tsuruya Yoshinobu has a history of more than two hundred years as one of the most famous confectionary shops in Kyoto. Last year, they partnered with "Kirby's Dream Land" to launch " Kirby's  Monaka ". Monaka (最中) is a Japanese sweet made of azuki bean jam filling sandwiched between two thin crisp wafers made from mochi.
With the combination of traditional Japanese wagashi and adult sweets, the cute and eye-catching shape of Kirby's Dream Land, and ingredients from old Kyoto shops, it has created a buzz since its first sale.
The official Tsuruya Yoshinobu website will be available for pre-order from March 5 (Thu), 2020, and will be sold in limited quantities at Tsuruya Yoshinobu stores and Nintendo TOKYO stores from March 14 (Sat) to April 30 (Thu), 2020.



Open the jar, spread the red bean filling on the center crust and top with another center crust to enjoy! Not only do you get to eat the best food, but the most special thing is that you can experience the fun of making it by hand, and the method of making it is very simple, so it's fun to make it with kids!



Red beans and other fillings can be kept in a jar for a long time, so make your own when you want. Enjoy it with hot tea while enjoying the flowers. it's also a great gift!



This spring limited edition set is based on the Japanese style pattern of Saizen weave in the outer box and jar, and the pink Kirby pattern of cherry blossom knot. The cute and classic packaging makes you want to collect it!



The regular version is filled with "Kokura red beans" and "bean paste", while the spring version is filled with "Sakura red beans" with cherry blossom flavor and "Kokura red beans" with small beans from Tamba Da Nayen. In addition to the filling upgrades, this time around it also debuts the pinkest middle crust, which is the same pink as Kirby's, doesn't it look even cuter?


The spring edition is divided into two combinations: "Cherry Blossom Red Bean Filling", "Pink Crust", "Kokura Red Bean" and "Original Monaka Crust", and each combination has three kabi expressions! (One bottle contains 4 of each of the 3 expressions)



In addition, to commemorate last summer's first hit, you can get a special paper bag of "Tsuruya Yoshinobu" x " Kirby's Dream Land" when you purchase the spring limited edition " Kirby's Monaka " series online or in stores.
