One of the more popular souvenirs to bring home from Japan is none other than Japanese confectionary, also known as wagashi 和菓子. These sweets have a long history dating back to the Jomon Period. History aside, there was an exhibition by a group of wagashi stores in Kyoto at Takashimaya. Some of these stores have been in the business since the 1400s.
