Cherry: up to $7 per cherry
Yamagata Prefecture is the most famous cherry-growing region in Japan. Fruiting cherry trees were first introduced to Japan during the Meiji Period (1868-1912), and after several years of failure, Japan discovered that Yamagata has the perfect climate for cherries. Ever since, Yamagata has been intensely growing cherries. You can taste Yamagata’s cherries in our Choco Magatte C’est Bon: Cherry Flavored Rice Puffs. Among all Japanese cherries, Sato Nishiki is the most popular cherry for its long shelf life, pretty look and amazing flavor. Due to its advantages, one cherry can cost up to $7.
