05 7月 Wagashi in Summer
Writing by Hiro who can’t wait hot summer!
Are you in or do you have plan to go to Japan during summer?
If so, I recommend to explore Wagashi in Tokyo which is Japanese traditional sweets.
There are a lot of different kinds of them. It’s different from each seasons.
You can enjoy not only the taste but looks.
So today I’m gonna show you summer Wagashi🌸
It’s beautiful, right?
Kawashima means small islands in the river. The orange color shows sunset.
It’s clear so makes us feel cool summer.

It’s limited wagashi during July 1 to 7 usually.
In japan, we have traditional event “七夕 Tanabata” on July 7.
This wagashi shows the night sky on Tanabata.
Yes, wagashi has story. It’s nice, huh?
The looks is exactly watermelon, right?
It’s made of agar and adzuki beans.
Summer wagashi is usually made of agar as you see.
