THE TRADITIONAL YUZU BATH

Around the Winter solstice, known as Toji, the Japanese take warm, relaxing yuzu baths. The

bright yellow fruits float on the surface of the water releasing their fragrance and according to

this Japanese tradition bring youth, health and a sense of well being.

 

THE JAPANESE YUZU

• Yuzu is a citrus fruit most widely cultivated in Japan.

• It has a refreshing, distinctive flavor and aroma.

• Fresh yuzu is available in season, from September to January.

• It is mainly used in cocktails, dishes and desserts (Café Kitsuné offers iced and hot yuzu tea).

Whereas in Europe citrus scents are often associated with summer, in Japan yuzu is

synonymous with winter.
