What you can expect

Get a taste of Japanese culture through its food during this small-group, hands-on wagashi sweets-making lesson. An experienced instructor helps you create the traditional snacks using seasonal ingredients. At the end of your class, enjoy your delightful creations with matcha tea.

Wagashi, or traditional Japanese sweets, are enjoyed both as a tasty treat and as an expression of the passing seasons. During your lesson, meet an experienced instructor and get introduced to the seasonal ingredients you will be using. From soft sakura mochi rice cakes in the spring to chestnut kuri manju buns for autumn, both the ingredients and the aesthetics of the wagashi are tailored to complement the time of year.

Your instructor leads you through the process of making your treats, explaining how the materials, colour, and form relate to the season. At the end of your lesson, sit back and enjoy your sumptuous creations alongside a cup of bitter matcha tea that perfectly balances out the sweetness of the wagashi.
