"Mikan" (みかん?, "Mandarin Orange") is the thirty-fifth single of Japanese female idol group Morning Musume. The song's title was chosen in accordance to the habit of eating mandarin oranges while sitting by a kotatsu, as a representation of each member's childhood memories. Mikan's Promotional video extends this concept further, by showing photographs of the members when they were children. It was released on November 21, 2007.[1]

Like its predecessor, there are three editions. Limited edition A is accompanied by a bonus DVD, while a 40-page booklet is available in limited edition B enclosed in a special package.
