Wa-ga-shi: Japanese confection in autumn

Wa-ga-shi: Japanese confection in autumn, in Kyoto
These are traditional confection, called Wagashi(和菓子) in Japanese and mainly used for Japanese tea ceremony. They fully satisfy not only our mouths but also our eyes. Many of these motifs are flowers or leaves in season and usually change every month. Changing seasons is one of the most important elements in our culture.

That's beautiful. It's wonderful how they can make these. This would be wonderful with a cup of tea. I usually drink tea in the evening while sitting back and watching TV.

I posted a photo of deer today, at least my version. The only one's I could get. And, some snow on my personal blog.
