JAPANESE CONFECTIONERY MOLDING

Morihachi Kaga Confectioneries

Morihachi is a nearly four-centuries-old sweets store, specializing in one of the highest quality confectioneries in Japan. Located within the same building is the Kanazawa Museum of Wooden Japanese Sweet Molds, which displays more than a thousand wooden molds dating back to the Edo period, and which also includes audio guides in English.

Learn how to mix and knead rice flour, food coloring and a special kind of powdered sugar, and pack it into a mold, allowing it to dry and harden into shape appropriate for each season: maple leaves, pine, and various flowers, each for a particular time of the year and a perfect accompaniment to the tea ceremony.
