Confectionary

Japanese-style cakes using mint, such as yokan (sweet jellied adzuki-bean paste), are the specialty of Kitami due to the past-prosper of the mint industry in the area. Western-style cakes are also popular in Kitami, and the abilities of Kitami patissiers are excellent in Hokkaido. Not only Japanese traditional confectionary, but also various kinds of sweets, including cakes and rusks, can be enjoyed in the city.
