From my point of view 🙂
“KANTEN” is the one of the Japanese traditional food accidentally found about 400 years ago in the freezing night. “KANTEN” means “Freezing Weather” in Japanese.
When we talk about “KANTEN,” we must know about “TOKOROTEN” as well. “TOKOROTEN” is made by the same ingredients and produced in the cool temperature. On the other hand, “KANTEN” is the freeze-dried version of “TOKOROTEN.”
The headquater of “KANTEN PAPA” is located at the City of Ina in Nagano where is very famous for producing “KANTEN” in Japan. Also, known for “Freezing” and “Dry” place in the winter. No wonder, very suitable. If you visit Ina in Nagano, it may be interesting to stop by “KANTEN PAPA Garden.” There are shops and restaurants in the Garden also.
Due to the technology, the new type of “KANTEN” in powder, flakes, noodles are also available these days. It is very popular as the replacement foods among Japanese people when we sometimes concern about calories.
At last, other than the flan I recommended, please try “Anmitsu” which is the traditional Japanese jelly sweet if you have any chance in Japan.
Thank you for reading my report. 🙂
