和菓子is art of fine Japanese confectionery.



In fact my great-grandfather was a confectioner who would create a lot of wagashi pieces in his day.

The pink/white pieces are called nerikiri and are created with bean paste while the others have mochi inside and various sweet beans attached.

Wagashi is often eaten with Japanese green tea and are not super sweet.  I would describe the sweetness as delicately sweet.  I wonder if there is a place that makes this in Seattle???
