Wagashi (和菓子) is a traditional Japanese sweet made of sweetened bean paste called anko, rice and fruits and is often served with a bowl of matcha in the Japanese tea ceremony.
Each piece is tiny, exquisitely designed and depict some aspect of seasons. For example, the month of April emphasizes the cherry blossom season. As a result, most sweets will evoke the feeling of springy, pinky cherry blossoms.
