70221-0026 - Amezaiku Candy Artist


Outside Showa 1920s Unknown
An Amezaiku vendor at his stall. Amezaiku is a craft using candy to create small sculptures, usually small animals and insects. Edible dyes are used to paint the creations. Often, the vendor told stories and performed magic tricks while creating their candy art. This card is from a series called “Nihon Fuuzoku” (Japanese Customs). The printing quality is not so good, but the series gives a great view on daily life in Japan during the early Showa Period (1925-1989).
