Wagashi

Tenmaya, March 2009 in Vienna, Austria

Wagashi (和菓子) is a traditional Japanese confectionery, often made of red bean paste or/and mochi (rice cake), and served with tea.

These are very basic ones, though.  In Japan there are many wagashi shops that run for generations and make wagashi as a work of art.
