Eating japanese sweets wagashi mitsumame jelly

Mitsumame (みつまめ) is a Japanese dessert. It is made of small cubes of agar jelly, a white translucent jelly made from red algae or seaweed. The agar is dissolved with water (or fruit juice such as apple juice) to make the jelly. It is served in a bowl with boiled azuki beans, often gyūhi, Shiratama dango and a variety of fruits such as peach slices, mikan, pieces of pineapples, and cherries. The mitsumame usually comes with a small pot of sweet black syrup, or kuromitsu which one pours onto the jelly before eating. Mitsumame is usually eaten with a spoon and fork.
