Nov 15 - Jan 7 '18 During Shop Open HoursMinamoto Kitchoan

The Exhibition of Beautiful Japanese Craft Art made by Edible Ingredients

Minamoto Kitchoan exhibits three Japanese craft arts all made with edible ingredients at Ala Moana Center store.

The Origin of the art craft is in Edo era and it is dimensionally and pictorially describing the Japanese four seasons or Japanese nature such as flowers, birds, wind and the moon. The technique of production is very delicate and requires expert skills.

Minamoto Kitchoan has recently put in a lot of work in to the production of the sweet art craft and had won the top award.

It must be surprising and unbelievable if you see all these delicate sculptures which are made of edible ingredients. Please come and look at this art at our store and feel the sense of beauty of Japanese culture.
