SpotWagashi (Japanese Confectionery)

A number of excellent confectionery types have long been made in the region thanks to Kanazawa's pre-occupation with the tea ceremony. Today, the Choseiden-honpo Morihachi is a well-established confectioner, boasting a history stretching back to 1625. Rakugan (a hard dry sweet made of soy flour and sugar) is a necessity in Japanese tea ceremonies and thus many rakugan shops can be found in the city. Tawaraya is famous for producing mizuame; clear and glutinous syrup made without the inclusion of sugar and preservatives. For a 'hands-on approach to sweet making, visit the Ishikawa Kanko Bussankan.
