Jo-Namagashi is a high quality Wagashi, a Japanese traditional confectionery, containing more than 30% of water, and created into elaborate beautiful forms. It is often served at tea ceremonies because the excellent artistry of Jo-Namagashi makes it more special compared to other sweets. Their appearance, made carefully and delicately, resembles seasonal flowers or Japanese seasonal traditions, and represents Japanese aesthetic.
