Master back medieval end the warring States period, Azuchi-Momoyama period that produced mind of the ‘Wabi-Sabi ‘ of Mr Sen No Rikyu  from the 1500’s age,  Japanese sweets exists which was  confectionery a very valuable thing in Japan  at that time. Times now is to go with the tea sweets is natural, but so easily not picked sugar at the old. Serious eats feel not free to Lord of the civil wars in this age of luxury, Samurai Lord also feel freerly  food is eaten very luxury, he called the vassal all the way though, so they thank as a formal style. Such as raw Yatuhashi(Cinnamon sweets in Kyoto)  called  Baked Funoyaki put in Japanese pepper, walnut or poppy in size and shape of the fold into two as elevens was being served from mr. SenNo Rikyu who is most famous ,a master of the tea ceremony.  This crab is made from wheat and iron plate thin extended, as if modern crepes that also was.  At that time it was in too much  valuable sugar

This sugar is monks brought from the Korean peninsula, when General Toyotomi Hideyoshi was invited as a guest. Enough talk about Toyotomi Hideyoshi, he had said  unmoved everything , and  he look at confections  seem surprised as if like missed waist. At this time, Toyotomi Hideyoshi had mentioned not only crepes
did  eating  Confetti candy that is Portugal cradle too. It was awarded a confetti candy to missionaries from Samurai ODA Nobunaga also incidentally.

中世末期、戦国時代、安土桃山時代に遡ること「わび・さび」の心を作りだした茶人『千利休』の時代である1500年代から日本には和菓子は存在していが当時は大変貴重なものであった。今の時代こそ、お茶のお供にお菓子は当たり前だが、昔はそう簡単に砂糖が手に入らなかった。この時代は戦国の殿様でも気軽に食するというのは、大変な贅沢でありわざわざ家臣を呼びつけ、ありがたく頂いたそうだ。麩の焼き(ふのやき)と呼ばれる生八橋のような大きさと格好のものでは山椒・クルミ・ケシ等を中に入れ二つ折りにして茶菓子として千利休から振舞われていた。この薄皮は、小麦から作られ鉄板に薄く延ばして、まるで現代のクレープそのもであった。当時は、あまりにも少ない貴重な砂糖であったため、砂糖を和菓子に入れるということはなく、千利休が出した皿にのせたクレープの横にほんの僅かな砂糖を添えられ、その砂糖を少々付けながら客人は楽しんだそうだ。 この砂糖は、朝鮮半島から僧侶が持ち帰ったもので、時の将軍豊臣秀吉が客人として招かれていた。何にも動じないと言われていた豊臣秀吉にまつわる話があり、砂糖菓子を見て食し、腰を抜かすほど驚いたそうだ。この時、豊臣秀吉が口にしたのはクレープだけでなくポルトガル発祥の金平糖も食べていたそうだ。 因みに織田信長も宣教師から金平糖を贈られたそうです。
