It is said that in the past,
the term“WAGASHI” (Japanese-style Confectionery)
originated from the term “KASHI”,
which means fruits and nuts. Later on, in the Yayoi Era,
Japanese-style confectionery transformed from a part of regular meal into luxurious food that was called “WAGASHI”.

Wagashi is made of combinations of natural ingredients such as sugar, Azuki red beans, grains, agar and fruits. Therefore the quality of ingredients is very important to make Wagashi with good texture and delicate sweetness. Our products are made from carefully selected ingredients.

The appreciation of the elegance found in the changing four seasons is one of the biggest appeal of Japanese culture.
Japanese people have held a festival to appreciate the changing seasons since old times. Japanese people have been making elaborated confectionery or each season, which decorated seasonal festivals.
