Sweeten your time in Japan with a fun sweets making lesson. Create delectable nerikiri and tasty taiyaki, two types of wagashi popular all year round.

Highlights
  • Create two kinds of traditional Japanese sweets on a 60-minute wagashi making class
  • Have fun making nerikiri, a confection made from white bean, sticky rice flour and sugar
  • Learn how to make taiyaki, a fish-shaped cake usually stuffed with sweet bean paste

Description

Jump right in and make two kinds of traditional Japanese sweets. Start with the traditional nerikiri, which has a delicate sweetness that dissolves in the mouth. Each one is made to delight the eyes and taste buds with seasonal shapes. This means many different types get made all year. Basically always made by hand, nerikiri are also the sweets used in the lovely tea ceremony, with the exquisite creations being pieces of edible art.

Then learn to make taiyaki, a common sight at festivals and a much loved treat. They start with a sweet batter, like pancakes, and then get stuffed with sweet bean paste or a range of other fillings. Of course, no cooking lesson is complete without a tasting, so get ready to eat up.

The instructor and staff were excellent and you get to try to make a few different wagashi sweets yourself. This is a very worthwh...ile experience because many local Japanese people themselves rarely get a chance to make wagashi. The actual building is a little tricky to find but I was able to ask for directions when I was near the area. more
