Award-winning artisan Kuroda Kazuhiko of Wagashidokoro Kisshoan in Shonan, Japan, creates amazingly detailed Washagi sweets, which are made of mochi, red bean paste,


Pretty sure they're called "Washagi sweets" and are not marzipan.

Marzipan is made from almonds and sugar.

Wagashi is made from mostly white bean paste and sugar. I've had some traditional wagashi and there are some which very much have a marzipan-like texture, but a lot of them have some radically different textures.

And yes, the pufferfish are AWESOME.
