New Stunning Japanese Lollipops Are Edible Works of Art
"At a Tokyo shop called Ameshin, 27-year-old Shinri Tezuka practices the art of amezaiku. Dating back to the 8th century, the Japanese craft uses tiny tools like tweezers and scissors to create intricate edible sculptures out of taffy. We were first mesmerized by Tezuka’s lickable masterpieces last year, when he had already attracted masses to his Asakusa-based storefront for his realistic renditions of goldfish, frogs, and other wild creatures. Now, his shop has a second location just below Tokyo Skytree, and he has just unveiled a fresh summer collection of sugary chefs-d’oeuvre that’s no less dazzling than his earlier concoctions." ‎- ronin
