Wagashi, traditional Japanese sweets, are delicious, but even more satisfying than eating them is learning how to make them yourself. This wagashi-making class is held at a private home in Tokyo and teaches you how to make the sweets from scratch, from making the dough to decorating them.
Option to combine with a mochi-making class (upon request)
Small-group class ensures more personal attention
Rare opportunity to visit a local Tokyoite's home
Choice of morning or afternoon class to best suit your schedule
The teacher, Miyuki Suyari, was amazing. My daughter and I felt very welcome and comfortable in her home. She explained everything so perfectly and provided us with advice on places in Tokyo to shop where we could purchase some of the tools for making our own wagashi when we get back home. I actually feel pretty confident that we will be able to re-create what she taught us! It was a great class, it got us into a different part of Tokyo that we probably would not have visited, and Miyuki's advice and suggestions for the rest of our time in Tokyo led us toward some cool experiences.
