What is the never-changing things?

 

The second owner of “Isshindo”, which has over 70 years of history in WAGASHI producing in Ito, Shizuoka says;

 

The difference between Japanese and Western confectionary is definitely the ingredients. Rice and beans is the two features of Wagashi.

 

These two became traditional since the wheat was not available in old days The rice is pounded into paste for mochi, or the rice cake, and the Azuki beans are cooked into paste called “An”.

 

As the style of WAGASHI changes with the times, the ingredients are basically the same.
