Yokan is a sweet red bean paste dessert in jelly form. Made from red beans, sugar, ans kanten (agar), yokan is sold in block form and served sliced. Yokan can be as simple as just red bean flavor but can also include actual red beans, chestnuts, sweet potatoes, and more. There are two main types of yokan: neri yokan and mizu yokan. Neri yokan is the common yokan that can be eaten at room temperature. Mizu yokan contains more water than neri yokan and is eaten cold during the summertime.
