Make Cute Japanese Sweets in Shinjuku

合計時間 : 1.5 hours

What to expect

The class takes place at a quaint Wagashi shop in central Tokyo, founded in 1961. Even though the shop is located in Shinjuku, one of the busiest districts in Japan, the surrounding neighborhood still retains an old-town feel with some historic shrines around. The shop offers a whole selection of delectable Japanese sweets -both baked and unbaked- including dango, dorayaki, and nerikiri.

Join us and learn how to make delicious and beautiful Wagashi, traditional Japanese sweets. This is a private, small-group experience where you can watch up-close and learn Wagashi making techniques from a seasoned chef and try them yourself. Your experience takes place at a small, quaint Wagashi shop located in Shinjuku, Tokyo. You will be making 4 pieces of seasonally-inspired Nerikiri, a kind of Wagashi made of sweet white bean paste and mochi. At the end of the class, enjoy tasting one of them with a bowl of Japanese them and take the rest of them with you.

I've been making Wagashi sweets for over 25 years at a small shop in Shinjuku I inherited from my father. My goal is to create "dreamy" Wagashi sweets that delight not only people's palates, but also their eyes with sophisticated beauty. I also regularly host classes to let people experience firsthand the fun of making beautifully-detailed Wagashi sweets. Many people from abroad have also enjoyed my classes, including international star Marion Cotillard.
