kingyo kan 01

Japanese confections are often made to imitate seasonal flowers or living things, like cherry blossoms in spring or hydrangeas in the rainy season.

In summer, there are many Japanese confections that take goldfish swimming in cool water as a motif, but I think this is the cutest one.
It’s called kingyo kan.
The package comes with a bell attached, making for a delightful present as-is.
