Surprise to see for the first time? The good thing about Amezaiku is that it can be enjoyed by both children and the elderly. Fun to see up close.

Profile of the artisan

Walking as an Amezaiku artisan for more than 20 years already.
Amezaiku was thought to be a "fading traditional art" when I started. Still doing the same old-fashioned Amezaiku I have been doing since I started.

History of Amezaiku

There are similar things around the world to shape candy into different forms.
One of the characteristics of Amezaiku is to use Japanese-style scissors in shaping process.
When and how did it begin?
