Japanese Confectionery

About

In Kanazawa City, the castle town of Kaga Hyakumangoku (the wealthy Kaga Province with a net worth of 1million koku of rice), the tradition of Japanese sweets along with Cha-no yu (tea ceremony) has been developed. Delicate, charming sweets, the taste for tea masters, have been created in the city. It is a great joy of tourists to find seasonal Kaga sweets such as jou-namagashi (high-ranking fresh and moist sweets) and kintsuba (sweets of red-bean paste wrapped with a thin skin made of flour) in long-established confectionary shops. The sweets made by skilled artisans reflect the long history and climate of the city. Sweets can be tasted in a confectionaries with a cup of green tea. Please appreciate the beauty of the cake first, and then enjoy its elegant sweetness and the flavors of the ingredients. At the Ishikawa Local Products Hall, under the program of “Let’s make sweets on your own”, the pastry chefs of famous confectionaries teach you how to make sophisticated seasonal fresh cakes. As you can bring them home, the program is very popular.
