Cool Japan / Traditional Japanese Sweets and Snacks


Traditional Japanese sweets, called “wagashi” in Japanese, are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to eat. Often created in the shape of leaves, flowers, and other articles of nature, wagashi represents Japan’s four distinct changing seasons and appeal to all five of the human senses. Wagashi are commonly served as the Japanese tea ceremony sweets.
Japanese Tea Sweets: Wagashi is traditionally served as part of a Japanese tea ceremony to offset the somewhat bitter taste of the tea.

Most wagashi consist of a combination of some or all of the following ingredients:
Anko – Azuki beans cooked into a paste called “An,” which is used as a sweetener.
Kanten – a fiber-rich gelatin used in jellied Wagashi sweets.
Wasambonto – A special type of Japanese sugar
