「里桜」と「菜種きんとん」

食べるのがもったいないようなきれいなお菓子でした。:-)

Traditional Japanese confections, called wagashi, have a delicate sweetness and are crafted to reflect the four seasons, intended to please the eye as much as the palate.

The wagashi in the main photo is named, "cherry blossom" and the second one , "rape flower".
