An artisan makes Japanese confection in front of customers in a shop and they can eat them.

Wagashi, Japanese confection, is both good taste and good looking. The design changes up to season. Red and yellow leaves are popular motif of the confection in November. These are sweet and rather suit for Macha, powdered green tea. Because Macha is more bitter than normal green teas.

Those are so beautiful. I, too, would not want to eat them. I'd just sit and look at them!
