Commemorative new banknote: Kaki Mochi, 10 pieces, 1080 yen

Sozen, a Kyoto-based arare (Japanese sweet shop), has launched a new "new paper money kakimochi," a fusion of tradition and innovation!

On June 1, 2024 (Sat), Sozen, a Nishijin confectioner located in Nishijin, Kyoto (Kamigyo-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture), began selling a new "Kakimochi (oyster cake) commemorating the new bank bill" that will bring good luck. This product was developed to commemorate the new banknote to be issued on July 3 (Wed.). The owner of Sozen hopes that the product will attract young people, who are increasingly turning away from rice crackers, by applying edible printing (food print) to traditional unglazed kakimochi (oyster cake). The new banknotes depict three great Japanese historical figures: Shibusawa Eiichi, the father of modern Japanese economics, on the 10,000 yen bill; Tsuda Umeko, Japan's first female student and a leader in women's education and social advancement, on the 5,000 yen bill; and Kitasato Shibasaburo, a medical doctor and an authority on bacteriology, on the new 1,000 yen bill.
It's a great buzz and makes a great gift! Take this opportunity to pick up a kakimochi, a fusion of tradition and innovation.
