Have you ever thought about eatable bonsai ?
(This is called kohgei-gashi/edible but for ornamental use)

Wagashi production became popular with prosperity of tea ceremony.
Kyoto, Kanazawa, Matsue, Tokyo and Nagoya are famous with "Jonamagashi"
which served with tea.

Each Jonamagashi has it's own name. I think it's very difficult to
understand the meaning of each name, so please guess what it shows.
We enjoy its color, figure, cut end surface and guess a scene of the season.
Jonamagashi is a scenic art of four seasons.
