→ Did you know that Nikon is selling Yokan – a traditional Japanese jellied dessert made from adzuki beans:

“As for Nikon’s yokan, Naoyuki Okumura, a 34-year-old corporate employee in the city of Nagoya in Aichi Prefecture, said all camera buffs know about it.

In fact, the camera maker has been selling its own version of yokan since 1973, mainly for its employees who need a good gift for their important clients.

In 2000, the company started selling this yokan to general consumers via its online shopping site. Nikon’s yokan, sold in packages bearing the corporate logo, comes in five varieties including the traditional ogura that highlights the taste and flavor of the adzuki red bean paste and one containing yuzu citrus fruit as a key ingredient.”
