Picture: Higashi (dried sweets) depicting Matsuba (pine needles)
Matsu (pine tree) is one of Japan’s three auspicious plants together with Take (bamboo) and Ume (Japanese plum), and used on various festive occasions such as the New Year celebration and weddings.
This requires time-consuming and labor-intentive processes and we are currently preparing many kinds of dried sweets for the New Year holiday season.
