OHIGASHI (handmade confectionary)

Photo Gallery

Handmade at Tsuboneya confectioner in Kyoto. Tsuboneya is well-known as a confectioner who makes traditional WAGASHI Japanese confectionary by hand with careful attention to quality and detail.

OHIGASHI is one of the most traditional Japanese confectionary which is often served at Japanese tea ceremony and pairs very well with Japanese green tea. OHIGASHI is made from premium fine-grain Japanese sugar called WASANBON and shaped into flowers or other auspicious symbols of the four seasons of Japan.

WASANBON is made in Kagawa and Tokushima prefectures in southwest Japan. The sugar is made from thin sugarcane plants called Taketo, grown especially in these areas and made locally using traditional methods. WASANBON is known for its high-toned sweetness.

Just a little water is added to WASANBON. It is mixed well and strained in order to be fine. Green, red, yellow, purple, blue, and other colors are added using natural food coloring. The mixture is then shaped by pretty Japanese traditional wooden molds which are handcrafted. Tsuboneya confectioner has a few hundred kinds of wooden molds and uses them differently in each season. Then the confectionary is dried and finished. All processes are completed by hand.

The various shapes and combinations, which express the four seasons in Japan, change almost every month as listed below. So, please note that the shapes and combinations can be different from the picture. Celebrate the four seasons with this charming traditional Japanese confectionary, a perfect complement to green tea.
