The video below is a slideshow of Japanese confectionery art. Japanese confectionery is called wagashi in Japanese. This video especially introduces “kogei-gashi” meaning “confectionery craft” unlike everyday wagashi such as dumplings, buns with bean-jam filling, and rice cakes covered with bean-jam.

Kogei-gashi are edible art that wagashi artisans spend considerable time and effort on representing beauty of four seasons and energy of life using edible ingredients only.

Kogei-gashi is originated in Kyoto in Genroku and Kyoho period (1688-1736). It was made for ornamental purposes (Source: Zenkaren).
