Tokyo Banana

Tokyo Banana is a banana-flavoured treat that people often buy as a souvenir when in Tokyo. The Japanese capital is famous for many things, but bananas are certainly not one of them! So have you might have guessed, Tokyo Bananas where first released as a tong-in-cheek representative dessert of Tokyo but they somehow really become popular.

Are They Halal?

The short answer is that it depends on the product. Here is an explanation of what you should avoid and what is Halal.


Basically, avoid the cream-filled ones. Unfortunately, this includes the original Tokyo Banana and many variations of it.

The reason, for one thing, is that they contain bovine-derived gelatin in the filling. If you check the label, you should be able to spot ゼラチン, which is the Japanese word for gelatine and it is "pronounced zerachin". Also, some of these cream-filled treats contain liquor, written 洋酒 on the label and pronounced "yohshu". The Baumkuchen cake also contains alcohol.


These products are not Halal certified but they do not contain any ingredients that would make them non-Halal either. So here they are.

Tokyo Banana Castella Cake

The Castella Cake is liquor free and gelatin free. You can get a box of eight pieces for ¥1,134.


Tokyo Banana has its own brand of banana-flavoured Kitkats. They are also liquor free and gelatine free. A gift box of 8 pieces is ¥702.

Langue De Chat

Langue de chat cookies are a popular souvenir in Japan. These Halal ones are filled with banana-flavoured white chocolate. A box of 16 is ¥1,018.

Banana Pie

These buttery pastry cookies are also banana-flavoured. You can get 15 of them for ¥1,080.


There you have it, the Tokyo banana products that are Halal! They make great souvenirs and can be kept for at least 14 days.
