椿の和菓子 Sweets Camellia

日本[にほん]の伝統的[でんとうてき]な(= traditional)スウィーツを和菓子[わがし]と言[い]います。季節[きせつ]と関係[かんけい]のあるお菓子[かし]がたくさんあります。

Japapese traditional sweets are called “wagashi”. There are many season-related designs of wagashi.

3月[がつ]は椿[つばき] (= camellia)の季節[きせつ]。奈良[なら]にある和菓子屋[わがしや]さんでは「糊[のり]こぼし」という和菓子[わがし]を作[つく]っています。椿[つばき]の形[かたち] (= shape)の和菓子[わがし]です。毎年[まいとし]、3月[がつ]にだけ作[つく]るそうです。朝日[あさひ]新聞[しんぶん]このページにアクセスすると、そのかわいい椿[つばき]のお菓子[かし]の写真[しゃしん]を見[]ることができます。 

It is now March and the season of camellia’s blossom. I saw a photo of pretty wagashi shaped camellia the other day.
 
A wagashi shop located in Nara makes special wagashi shaped camellia. This wagashi is called “norikoboshi” in that shop. The shop makes and sells "norikoboshi" only in March every year. This page of Asahi Shimbun Newspaper shows a photo of this pretty wagashi.

    “糊こぼし” wo tabetai!
    last year, my brother’s friend, an exchange student from Japan gave us some Okashi her family made in Japan. (her grandparents own an Okashi shop) and they all look so cute and taste REALLY GOOD!!! I wonder how long it took them to make those delicious okashi…. ^_^
