In addition, candy sweets, Yokan, Manju, Monaka, rice crackers, etc. Our familiar Japanese sweets have been loved for a long time.
Currently, Japanese confectionery is also used for sugar, but it is said that the sweetness that was first made in Japan was like a candy that converted starch in the rice to sugar. With the passage of time, various materials were added to them, but even now animal raw materials and dairy products are rarely used, and seaweeds such as agar are used as a coagulant, and so on. It has been taken over.
Even though it is colorful, its elegant color and sweet taste are only expressed in Japanese sweets.
Many Japanese-style sweets are made with the assumption that they eat with green tea familiar to Japanese, and there are also many made for the “seasons” and “nodes” unique to Japan.
Especially in this country, there are many events and ceremonies, and Japanese confectionery is also used as a gift at that time.
Japanese sweets that convey various feelings such as the joy and sadness of people, rather than just eating as sweetness, are deeply related to people’s lives, and have been cherished and loved since ancient times.
Among them, there are sweets that are realistically and pictorially expressed as the name “crafted confectionery”, and “Sansuikachoufugetsu” is the main theme of the crafted confectionery. The art that expresses the flowers, animals, seasons, and landscapes that can be created by the Japanese sweets maker with sweets that can be eaten is a masterpiece and attracts people.
Japanese-style confections that delighted our eyes and enjoyed them in our mouth are foods that combine Japan’s unique culture and tradition. It may be said that it is just “crystal to eat”.
