Wagashi (和菓子?) is a traditional Japanese confectionery which is often served with tea, especially the types made of mochiazuki bean paste, and fruits. Wagashi is typically made from natural (mainly plant) ingredients. The names used for wagashi commonly fit a formula—a natural beauty and a word from ancient literature; they are thus often written with hyōgaiji (kanji that are not commonly used or known), and are glossed with furigana. Most wagashi are made entirely of plant-based ingredients. (source)
