These sakura-filled dewdrops are every bit as delicious as they are beautiful.

As the cherry blossoms begin to bloom around Japan, more and more sakura-themed temptations are making an appearance on store shelves around the country.

One of this year’s most popular offerings is the delectable-looking sakura jelly, which pays homage to Japan’s iconic springtime flower by encasing it in a globe of jelly so transparent it looks like a beautiful oversized dewdrop!

These jellies were created by the oldest confectionery shop in Japan’s northern Akita Prefecture, Eitaro, which was founded all the way back in 1883.
