Though typically made out of bean paste, sugar and rice, wagashi are crafted in a wide variety of shapes and colors, with seasonality regarded as extremely important.

The program includes a demonstration by chefs from Toraya. Moderated by Julia Moskin, Reporter, Dining Section, The New York Times.
