      Thank you for the comment!

      When it comes to our native fruits, “Yuzu (柚子)” is a fruit very familiar to us Japanese.

      Yuzu is not only used in Japanese cuisine, but the small grapefruit-like fruit is also added to a hot bath.
      The Japanese fruit bath is called “Yuzuyu (ゆず湯)”. If you want to know more about it, this article will help.

      I would like to search for more information and share the uses of Japanese fruits and herbs again!
