What is "Wagashi" ?

Europe and America have great culture of cakes.
And so does Japan.
Japanese style cake is called Wagashi (wa=和 gashi<kashi>=菓子).

It is not so long ago that Japan started to use Milk or Cream on daily basis.
Therefore Japan quite often used rice, wheat, adzuki beans and soy beans.
And their tastes are so well designed to go well with Matcha (抹茶=Japanese Tea).
Now, let me introduce you some famous Wagashis.

Very freshly made rice cake covered with soybean flour and sugar.
You also can use brown sugar syrup.

Imo Kempi (芋けんぴ)

名古屋すごろく@NagoyaSugoroku
覚王山》職人が一本一本包丁切りにした生のさつま芋を菜種油で揚げ、自家製蜜を絡めた覚王山「吉芋」の芋けんぴ。やはり特徴的なのはその細さ✨生を揚げているので外はカリカリ、中はホクっの食感。芋専門店の本気を感じます!!

Cut a sweet potato into rectangular slices and fry it with oil and coat it with sugar.

It is my super recommendation.
Thanks to this, I gained weight by 4 kg.

Ohagi is also called Botamochi.

Steam sticky rice and ordinary rice at the same time and knead,
And coat it with adzuki bean.
