Wagashi is a traditional Japanese style sweet. These sweets are often made from plant-based ingredients such as sweetened red bean paste, rice flour, and agar-agar (a type of seaweed-derived gelatin). Wagashi comes in a wide variety of shapes and flavors, and they are often served with tea in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies.


Wagashi is an important part of Japanese culture and is often given as gifts or served during special occasions such as weddings and holidays. They are not only delicious but also beautiful in their presentation, with intricate shapes and vibrant colors that are often inspired by nature.
Due to their short shelf-life, not all wagashi can be shipped. We are carefully expanding our lineup with suitable, delicious sweets.
