Description

For the past six generations, the Fukushima family has mastered and preserved the intricate art of Japanese confectionery known as wagashi. These ornate sweets, meant to reflect the delicate beauty of nature, were traditionally created to accompany the Japanese tea ceremony. They are often shaped to resemble traditional flower motifs, and change with the shifting seasons. At Fukushimaya, approximately 200 different types of sweets are created throughout the year, with daffodils and camellia blossoms ushering in spring. Using designs that date back to Japan’s Edo period, the Fukushima family is keeping a deeply-rooted Japanese art form alive.
