Traditonal Japanese Sweet

Sweet Sweets – Traditional Japanese Sweets


One cannot talk about traditional Japanese sweets without connecting them to the four seasons.  Ingredients and appearance often reflect the time of year.   Considered luxury treats, the candies originated from the Heian Period’s noble court culture, then later, were highly influenced by the introduction of the tea ceremony.   This engaging documentary focuses not only on the history of Japanese confectionary, but how talented artisans continue century old traditions today.
