Sweet Sweets

A box of wagashi, or Japanese confectionery that not only looks good, but also tastes good. Not overly sweet, but just right. Many Japanese feel western sweets have too much sugar in them, since we prefer moderate sweetness. I was quite shocked the first time I ate icing on a cake...I thought my teeth would dissolve. But I heard that people from abroad feels Japanese cakes have "no taste". Yep, every man to his taste.
