We study the structure of Yukawa matrices derived from the supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on magnetized orbifolds, which can realize the observed quark and charged lepton mass ratios as well as the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maswaka (CKM) mixing angles, even with a small number of tunable parameters and without any critical fine-tuning. As a reason behind this, we find that the obtained Yukawa matrices possess a Froggatt-Nielsen-like structure with Gaussian hierarchies, which provides a suitable texture for them favored by the experimental data.
