Did you know that Japanese candy makers back in the 18th century are known to craft these beautifully designed desserts that resemble Murano glass sculptures. These visually delicious traditional Japanese treats are called “amezaiku” and are usually offered as temple gifts or alms.
Shinri Tezuka, an amezaiku candy maker, reinvented these wonderful lollipops to give tourists a taste of Japan on a stick. It comes in a very modern Japanese minimalist packaging, yet the actual lollipop designs are based on traditional Japanese items.
