A New Kind of Japanese Sweets

We're going to try something new starting today, and instead of adding a few presentations at a time on the site -- like we did the other day -- we're going to be sharing a new one every day, which we'll also highlight here on the blog. Today we take a look at one of our favorite presentations from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 83, in which the design duo of Kichiko offer fun new takes on okashi (Japanese sweets) -- the latter part of the presentation offers a realistic take on existing snacks.
