Japanese confectionary called “wagashi” appears beautiful. Tiny lovely confection, Konpeito is no exception. It’s simple looking, yet the delicate taste of sweetness melts in your tongue. Besides it’s colorful. Some may be reminded of the candy as rock candies, but the difference is much smaller.
It had been introduced by Portoguese
The technology was introduced to Japan from Portuguese traders back in the 16th century. Back then, the confectionary was special for upper class people. However, back in the meiji period, it became more popular to any people. For more than 400 years, Konpeito has been loved by many people.
Konpeito is made by heating a very tiny sugar and adding some more liquid sugar to make it bigger. Needless to say, it takes a few weeks to make the delicate confectionary. Even mastering to make the confectionary takes decades. The world of wagashi has its own depth and tradition.
