The Japanese art of Candy Sculpture by ‘Amezaiku’ Artisan Shinri Tezuka
Ever wonder how a slippery goldfish or a wriggling tadpole taste like? Now you would be able to try it yourself thanks to a new candy shop in Tokyo called Ameshin that offers traditional Japanese amezaiku, a form of artisinal candy making that dates back to the 8th century. Fish, squid or frog, these tasty lollipops are made from sugary syrup, starch, and organic coloring, but they look almost too good to eat. These glasslike candy are only available in Tokyo right now, which costs 1000-2000 yen (8-17 USD).
