Fodor's Review

Not far from Kokusai Street is a shop fit for a king. In fact, the traditional sweets that Jahana Kippan produce were once made for the royal court of the Ryukyu Kingdom. The secret recipes have been passed down from generation to generation, the ingredients are all natural, mainly based on sugarcane, winter melon, and kippan, a citrus fruit. Hisano speaks excellent English and can explain about the different delicacies. The green tea–covered sweets are popular, but the coconut-covered tougan (winter melon) is sublime.
