Ishikawa is known to have a strong affinity with wagashi sweets, with the practice of gifting wagashi a habitual part of everyday exchanges.
With a tea culture as deeply rooted as ours, Komatsu is of course no exception in nurturing the many wagashi artisans needed to craft these delicate treats that are often as anticipated as the tea they embellish at tea ceremonies.
While many of these often family-run businesses have carried on the sweet craft for generations, their constant innovation ensures renewed excitement through the seasons.
