The Wagashi (Japanese Style Sweets) Seem to Help You Realize Your Dream
I’d like to introduce to you some Japanese sweets which have “Daruma doll” motif. You know what, Daruma is a lucky charm doll which springs back upright again and again even if knocked over. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them a popular gift of encouragement.
“Fortune Daruma doll candy”
“A bag of fortune Dharma confections”
The Japanese sweets are also known as “bolo”; they are baked confections whose ingredients are wheat flour, eggs and sugar. The Japanese sweets have a flaky, crunchy texture and natural sweetness. Yummy! I believe you’ll love the baked goods. A smiling face, a cool face and a thinking face…
“Daruma-Okoshi”; Edo traditional candy store Mannen-dou
Okoshi is made from granulated wheat and starch. The wheat and starch are mixed with starch syrup. It tastes like rice crispy treat. The Daruma shaped wooden mold is used to make the special “Okoshi.” At the end these 5 sweets are colored by writing brush one by one.
The Daruma doll, also known as a Dharma doll, is a hollow, round, Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen sect of Buddhism.
