|Wagashi erasers-- the set of Japanese Sweets|
Wagashi-- Japanese sweets... but you can't eat these because they're all erasers:-))
Last time was the Going To School Set of erasers; today-- the Set of Japanese Sweets, most of which I think you've seen!
O-Dango! And green tea, of course, which matches the taste somehow of Japanese sweets (coffee or black tea taste... odd with Wagashi. *No* idea why. Anybody out there have any theories about that?)
The real thing-- Sanshoku Dango (three-color dango) which I've posted about before.
Kashiwa Mochi (Oak Leaf Mochi-- wrapped in the pickled oak leaf that you can eat)...
...naturally that goes in the set, too. The set came with the little tray. The Japanese have the *best* trays...
And the other leaf-wrapped mochi sweet-- Sakura Mochi (cherry blossom/leaf mochi)...
...which in the eraser set is the roll-version-- pink Sakura Mochi wrapped around sweet azuki bean paste, then wrapped with the cherry leaf (which you're supposed to eat;-)). And green tea.
...And the last one is NOT a pancake.
And that's all I'll say about it for today:-))
Mata asobou, ne!
