Feel free to follow favy!

Kaiseki (会席料理)

Kaiseki cuisine is a completely unique dining experience that you must try at least once while you're in Japan. Kaiseki cuisine is the absolute refinement of Japanese cuisine, it is a succession of incredibly meticulously made beautiful dishes. It is a style of Japanese cuisine consisting of a set of dishes served on an individual tray for entertaining guests.

Temari Sushi (手まり寿司)

Temari (手まり寿司) in Japanese means handball. Temarizushi is a ball of sushi rice topped with fish, meat, egg and or vegetables. The dish is rather simple, yet incredibly stunning. The precision with which it is prepared and the plating is superb.

Raindrop Cake (水信玄餅)

Mizu Shingen Mochi was first produced by a company called Kin Sei Ken (金精軒). Shingen mochi is a traditional Japanese sweet made of "mochi" (rice cake) covered with "kinako" (ground sweet soybean powder). Mizu, in Mizu Shingen Mochi, means water. It is a simple dessert made with a pinch of sugar.
Once again, the beauty of this dessert lies in its simplicity.

Wagashi (和菓子)

Wagashi means traditional Japanese sweets. Japanese sweets are usually not too sweet and are generally made with a variation of "anko" (red bean paste). They are often very delicate and colourful.
What is more is that each region has its local speciality and even better, the sweets change seasonally, which means there is an almost infinite number of Japanese sweets to discover! All the more beautiful and tastier than the next.

Fruit Parfait (果物パフェ)

A parfait is a dessert that originated in France and is made with custard, whereas the American version usually is made with yoghurt, granola and fruits. The Japanese integrated the dish into their cuisine and made it fantastic and even more beautiful, and even use local ingredients. It is usually made with layers of cornflakes, whipped cream, ice cream, sauce or jam, and topped with cookies, fresh fruit, or even mochi, etc.
