Amezaiku is one of the traditional Japanese arts crafts. The candy is softened by heating to around 90 degrees, and is finely crafted with bare hands and traditional Japanese scissors. Amezaiku is created by cutting, pulling, and bending candy which is attached at the top of stick.
You can view how they are made in the short video from NHK World’s “Unique Crafts!” introducing many wow moments of cutting-edge techniques using traditional Japanese know-how.
