Ameshin is a confectioner based in Tokyo, Japan that maintains the tradition of amezaiku, or the art of making small-scale candy sculptures, but with a modern twist. It identifies its vision as: "tradition, to the future."

This type of work calls for the candy to be softened by heating to around 90 degrees Celsius, making it possible for an artisan to manipulate the edible material to create virtually any kind of shape imaginable. Some of the most notable exhibition pieces from Ameshin take the form of animals, but it also offers made-to-order options that are ideal for those who seek a highly customized gift, such as for a wedding, special company event or other occasion.
