Kanbi Ka no Hana Japanese Sweets Crepe Ornaments
Traditional wagashi-shaped decorative fabric items set
Top-quality sweets can look like miniature sculptures and that is as true for Japanese confectionery as it is for Western – perhaps even more so, considering the Japanese love for all things natural. The Kanbi Ka no Hana Japanese Sweets Crepe Ornaments takes this concept one step further, presenting an assortment of several such classical Japanese sweets (called wagashi) but handmade in Kyoto using some of the finest crepe rayon fabric Japan's old capital has to offer!
Laid out in a box with a transparent cover (like real wagashi), there are six Kanbi Ka no Hana Japanese Sweets Crepe Ornaments in this beautiful set. Four of them are shaped like special sweets inspired by flowers (shumeigiku or Japanese anemone, kikyo or Chinese bell flower, renge or lotus flower, and choyo or chrysanthemum), while the remaining two are shaped like more everyday sweets: the mikasa yaki (red bean pancake) and the mame daifuku (soybean rice cake). If you are looking for a way to decorate your home using the visual splendor of Japanese confectionary without worrying about them going bad, this set is for you! Just don't try eating them!
