Meigetsudo Company
Hakata Torimon

The Hakata Torimon is one of Fukuoka’s signature foods. The heavenly steamed bun combines rich butter and milk with traditional sweet beans. Created by the Meigetsudo Company in 1993, it quickly became popular and locals consume it in abundance. Whereas the traditional manju is filled with sweet azuki bean paste, the Hakata Torimon has a filling of white azuki beans mixed with butter, eggs, condensed milk and cream, which adds a richness regular manjus don't have. The result is a smooth and unctuous manju that melts on your tongue.  You can find the treat at the Fukuoka Airport, the Meigetsudo souvenir shop inside the Hakata Station, and at many other locations around Fukuoka. Of note: They depict the characters and creator of a popular manga in Japan - Hakatakko Junjo ("The innocent Hakatan").
