Yatsuhashi are an interesting confection that Kyoto is famed for. Similar to Gyūhi, they are an alluringly soft slice of chewy rice dough coated in cinnamon and sweet soy flour and wrapped around a ball of anko. The mix of strong, familiar spice and subtle, slightly exotic flavors should appeal to those who’ve developed a taste for traditional Japanese confectionery, although they might strike less-attuned palates as a bit odd.
