Wagashi and a homemade mug

Little Monk made his own tea mug in Japan recently (although the proprietors of the make-your-own-ceramics store fired it for him), we recently used it at tea-and-snack time.





The treats are two Kumamoto specialties — Jindaiko and Mushagaeshi, the latter named for the curved stone walls of Kumamoto Castle, designed to repel climbing enemies.
