NOTE:

Toraya is one of the oldest makers of traditional confectionery in Japan, with 480 years of history. According to an archive, they were already supplying Wagashi confectionery to the Imperial Family in the 16th century as they still do today. Wagashi confectioners from this preeminent establishment and takram design engineer Kotaro Watanabe, an external researcher of ifs Future Laboratory, collaborated towards the confection of the future.
