Wagashi and Japanese Sweets have been loved among the Japanese for a long time
Do you like a confectionery which is shaped like cute animal ? There are many wagashi or Japanese western style sweets which are shaped like animals, especially cute rabbit-shaped treats have been loved among the Japanese for a long time. I collected some rabbit-shaped Japanese sweets.
“Inaba no shirousagi (White rabbit of Inaba)” is one of the popular souvenirs which represents the San’in region. It is named after the Hare of Inaba, which is a Japanese mythological creature.
“Fukuusagi (lucky rabbit)” is a bite-sized steamed manju (bun).
“Snow rabbit” is a marshmallow made using gelatin, which has a lot of collagen in it. Marshmallow with white bean paste wrapped inside and smoothly melts in your mouth, making it easy to eat the confection.
