    Rakugan by Moroe-ya

    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.
