This is the special order from Toraya Kyoto, a famous wagashi house specialized in Yogan.  This Oshimono is made using a wooden mold (a few hundred years ago) and put the coloured rice powder and sugar into it and press it and release it to come out.The exact colouration and placement requires extreme skill.  This particular one is called Hana no En from the Genjikou series.  It celebrate the cherry blossom season.
