Ama no gawa (the Milky way) - This wagashi celebrates Tanabata, the Stars Festival. The lovers Orihime (Vega) et Hiko-boshi (Altair), separated all year long by the heavenly river, are finally reunited on the 7th night of the 7th month. Prepare your wishes! This wagashi depicts an evening sky dotted with tiny stars (sesame seeds), crossed by the milky river of light. [personnal translation]
