Why so many sweets in Japan?
Traditionally, we have customs which we enjoy sweets between lunch and dinner.
However, sweet food made of sugar was so precious that only rich class could eat in old times.
We Japan started trading with foreign countries around 1960’s and introduced many wester stuffs.
One of them was food, sweets.
As our income level was getting higher, more ordinary people could enjoy sweet foods.
All photos above is originally from western country but we mix wester taste with our Japanese taste.
Now some Japanese sweets are exported to foreign countries.
If you are really into sweets, I recommend you to come to Japan.
You will be surprised at its quality and quantity.
