Japanese sweets / Wagashi

Confectionery made from traditional Japanese recipes. As they are often enjoyed as snacks to be served with Japanese tea or green tea, most of them are sweet and oil is rarely used. As for the main ingredients, sugar, starch syrup, rice, wheat, sweet beans, and yams are often used.

Senbei (rice cracker): 
Japanese rice crackers can be roughly grouped into 3 different types based on the ingredients used: flour & eggs, rice, or potato starch.

Ame (hard candy): 
In Japan, as seen in Kintaroame and human/animal-shaped candies, there are many types of candies whose looks can be enjoyed as well as their tastes. In recent years, many health-conscious products such as candies and cough drops containing xylitol (a sugar substitute good for dental health) are distributed.
