R Style Review

Even in some of the swankiest restaurants, Japanese wagashi (confectionaries) aren't up to par. To sample authentic handmade wagashi while sipping green tea, head to this café. The main ingredients in wagashi are adzuki beans, rice, and other grains sweetened slightly by sugarcane—making these treats moderately healthy (at least compared with their European counterparts). The intricate morsels of edible art are almost too perfectly presented to eat—almost, but not quite. Try the konomi (rice dumpling with adzuki conserve) or koyomi (bracken dumpling with soy custard) set.

    A gaijin introduction to japanese desserts

    R-style located at the top of ometesando hills one of the swankiest shopping districts in Tokyo is one of the best places to get your introduction to the Japanese art of wagashi (loosely translated to desserts). But like all things Japanese only perfection will do and the desserts are more of art pieces than morsels you would put in your mouth. However this unpretentious place is a true oasis in the hustle and bustle of what is Tokyo! Great cafe! An offspring from the traditional wagashi maker from the Eodo period!
