Japanese sweets are a delectable product of Japanese culture. Built up by the technology and creativity of Japanese artisans for centuries, Japanese sweets created using techniques honed to bring out the deep and rich flavor of natural ingredients, while attaining the highest level of beauty. The sweets appeal to the human senses - enjoyed first with the eyes for its natural yet exquisite beauty, and then with the tongue as its savory flavor lingers and melts away. It is this underlying Japanese tradition that forms the base of K.MINAMOTO's confectionery creation.
At K.MINAMOTO, while we value time-honored techniques and the models Wagashi makers have set before us, we also aspire to create new confections suited for a more modern palate. The "Fruit Confection Nature Series", which traces the origins of wagashi while imbued with modern sensibility, is representative of this. With carefully selected ingredients, confections such as these are a result of our pursuit to design a confection that we can share with people from all over the world.
