Beautiful Japanese desserts

My love for Japanese desserts first started when I went on holiday to Tokyo and Kyoto a few years ago, where I discovered that it wasn't just about green tea ice-cream or red beans. It's hard to pick a favourite, but I can never say no to a matcha parfait, chestnut dessert or a cream anmitsu. It's really hard to find tasty Japanese desserts in London (most of the restaurants only serve green tea ice-cream), so when I came across these beautifully shot and absolutely delicious photos by bananagranola on Flickr, I immediately bookmarked them as a favourite. I could really use a trip to Japan right now.

Besides this beautiful wagashi set, she has other tasty-looking non-dessert foods in her photostream.
