traditional wagashi molds. via vintage from japan etsy.

quote from vintage from japan:

"Often made of sakura (cherry wood) and seasoned for about 3 years before carving, 
kashigata were used to make dried confectionery made of rice flour and sugar called rakugan. 
Earliest records show that this practice dates back to the mid-17th century."
