" […] sweet treats, many of which still look the same as they did hundreds of years ago […] "
Impressive shelf life.

IMHO these candies are more beautiful than delicious, but I think it’s because my palate is very Brazilian.

Here’s a whole TV episode about Japanese sweets, produced by NHK World. The show’s overall quality is patchy–depends on the segment–but I especially recommend the “Kashiori Song” at 9:56, which illustrates some of the social context and importance of these (to US eyes, incredibly finicky) sweets.

Those jellies are beautiful and ethereal. Much more refined than my attempt with the local small humans.
