Japanese desserts and sweets

You might think that Japanese food and society don’t leave much room for desserts: cakes, sweets, candies and such. Perhaps because a large majority of Japanese people are very slim. Yet the Japanese are quite greedy and very inventive in their production of desserts.

Here are a few pictures I took during my latest trip to Japan. Click on each thumbnail to view the photo full size:
