Hydrangea Parfait
Itoh Kyuemon introduced its hydrangea-inspired desserts 12 ago. The photos of the beautiful and delicate sweets leave viewers in awe!

The layers of the parfaits are topped with hydrangea-colored jelly, exuding a translucent hue that conveys a hint of refreshing early summer vibes. The top layer features matcha cookies adorned with blueberries, which resemble raindrops on leaves during the rainy season, presenting a full sense of the season.
