Wagashi of the Month: July


Kingyo, or goldfish fascinates many people with its beautiful colours and adorable shapes. Here in Japan, the fish is most popular in summer as Japanese people regard that its gently swaying tail in water evokes a sense of coolness.



Another one is Himawari, or sunflower. I think the flower is a bit modern motif, not a traditional one, but it was too pretty to pass over!




We are still stuck in the rainy season although it’s high time it had been over. Well, I’d rather this than the awful heat and humidity waiting ahead though….
