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.

Delicate confectionery

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.
