    Yatsuhashi is a traditional sweet from Kyoto, Japan. Yatsuhashi is made from glutinous rice flour, sugar and cinnamon. There are many various Yatsuhashi shops in Kyoto, but in Nikiniki, you can find very unique ones. The Yatsuhashi in Nikiniki are relly cute and colorful!

    3. Rakugan by Moroe-ya

    Cutest Wagashi 4

    Rakugan is a Japanese sugar candy. Although Rakugan is made from sugar, it’s not too sweet. In Japan, there are many colors and shapes of Rakugan and I think you can find them in every Wagashi shop. However, I recommend you to get them in Moroe-ya in Kanazawa, Japan. Moro-ya is one of the most traditional shops and they have many various types of Rakugan whose shapes are based on a particular season and culture.
