Now is the best time to view daffodils in the Kanto region.
These are Tama-zuisen(玉水仙:round daffodil).Traditional Japanese confections are almost made by hand.Although I made these by hand, traditional confectioners create far more refined ones. There is nothing harder than making simple confections. Maker's skills and aesthetic sensibility appears clearly throughout his work.

This is a cell-phone strap in the shape of a daffodil, which is formed in a mold for dry confections.
