Father’s Day, ‘Kyoto’ style. Yummy wagashi on the theme of work, fishing and love. Thanks Dad!

While wandering around Gion, Peko dropped into one of his favorite wagashi shops and discovered these delightful Father’s Day themed wagashi set. Kawaii indeed goes a long way to communicate feelings of love and affection.

    Hello maybelles mom,
    smile

    Hi cakewardrobe,
    I am sure that I would feel the same way if I were in NY. But, I heard that you can get wagashi in NY now? No?

    Hello Michelle,
    Namagashi (wagashi for tea ceremony) are rather sweet, the sweetness is to offset the bitterness of the maccha tea. But, by Western food standards, namagashi is not that sweet, I don’t think. Also, the sweetness is a very delicate and refined one, not at all cheap.

    These are made of various kinds of bean paste. (as are most nagamgashi)
