Have you ever tasted Japanese Mochi? You should.

Japan is a beautiful, magical place. Their sense of aesthetics runs through everything from clothing to architecture to packaging and food. I remember stopping into a small shop to grab a cheese sandwich and receiving something that looked like an art piece - two perfect triangles with the crust removed. Even the bag the sandwich was placed in was beautiful, sealed with a gold medallion. I never got used to everything as art, but I liked it. Food as an art form is celebrated in the Japanese semi-sweet, chewy rice treats called mochi. Once you try it, you'll want more.
