Wagashi for Autumn

 

We are beginning to see some signs of autumn approaching. We can now feel a cool breeze in the evening although it’s still hot and humid during the day. Preparing for various sweets reflecting the upcoming autumn, we have just begun to sell “Kuri-kinton” (chestnuts-based sweet, one of the most popular types of Wagashi in autumn) today!
