One of the many things we miss about Japan, apart from the breathtaking scenery and attractions, is treating ourselves to traditional Japanese confection. While travelling to the land of the rising sun might still be out of reach, we've found a local business - Love For Wagashi -  that can bring a little piece of Japan to you through their artisanal wagashi.


Read on to find out more about Love For Wagashi in Singapore!

First opened in March 2021, Love For Wagashi is helmed by a Singaporean who handcrafts nerikiri, a type of traditional Japanese wagashi that's made with sweetened white bean paste and glutinous rice flour. It is best enjoyed at room temperature with a cup of warm, unsweetened Japanese or Chinese tea. Here's a closer look at what they offer.

You can get the Winter Edition Omakase Set in boxes of 4 or 6. Each nerikiri is intricately shaped and sculpted, with designs that pay homage to Japanese winter elements such as winter scenes, flora, fauna, and foliage.
