Organic Dango Sweets Making Class at Temple in Kitakyushu

合計時間 : 1.5 hours

What To Expect

Located at the foot of Mt.Nuki-san in Kitakyushu, the temple where this class is held was built in 1239 during the Kamakura Period. The idyllic landscape of the surrounding area will make you feel like you're in a Ghibli movie. The temple's main hall was burned down during a war in the 19th century and had since been abandoned until a bartender-turned-priest brought it back to life in 2014. Today, the temple serves as a peaceful sanctuary for many locals.

You're in for a fun and sweet time! Join this 1.5-hour class and learn how to make healthy and delicious Japanese sweets at a temple surrounded by nature in Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka. Dango, a ball-shaped sweet dumpling made of rice flour, is one of the most popular traditional Japanese sweets. During this class, you can make delicious dango using only plant-based ingredients with the step-by-step assistance of of a culinary expert specializing in organic sweets. At the end of class, savor the dango made by yourself with a bowl of Japanese tea. The temple is surrounded by rural landscape that will make you feel like you're in one of the Ghibli movies, perfect for someone who wants to spend quality time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

I'm a certified culinary instructor specializing in organic food based in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka. My passion is developing many healthy sweets recipes using only plant-based ingredients. 10 years ago, I made a Bento lunch box for a friend from abroad, and looking at his delighted smile has inspired me to host cooking classes where people can learn more about Japan through tasty food. I hope this class will help you discover the joy of making and eating healthy, safe food that brings out full flavor of the ingredients.
