Wagashi Making Experience

Introduction of Japanese Sweets Making Experience

You can experience traditional Japanese confectionery production methods and techniques in a retro space that has been passed down for more than 100 years and is normally inaccessible.
Why don’t you join our fourth-generation craftsman in making japanese sweets and dorayaki, which are richly decorated with the seasonal flavors of the year?
Our fourth generation artisan will demonstrate how to make seasonal Daifuku and fresh confections as a sample, teach you how to make them using the sample, and you will actually make a few of them. Next, I will demonstrate how to make “Dorayaki” and teach you how to make several “Dorayaki” using the sample as a guide. Now you are a Japanese confectioner! Afterwards, you will put the finished “josei-gashi” and “dorayaki” in our original souvenir bag and take them home.

①traditional Japanese sweets called Jo-namagashi making course

We will make seasonal japanese sweets using wooden molds and old tools such as triangular spatulas and chakin squeezers. The types will change according to the time of year and season.
The sweets you make can be packed in a box to take home.

②Seasonal Daifuku Making Course

You will experience making Daifuku with seasonal ingredients.
You will wrap seasonal fruits in red bean paste or dough and form them into a shape. The Daifuku you make can be packed in a box to take home.

Dorayaki making experience

The “Dorayaki Making Experience,” offered as part of both of the above two courses, is also very popular!
The main part of the experience involves baking the dough for the dorayaki, and then preparing the anko (sweet bean paste) with a spatula.
It can be difficult for first-timers to bake the dough so that it all has the same shape, but it is an exciting time for all participants.

After the experience, please enjoy a cup of pesticide-free, organically grown powdered green tea in the historic store that has been in existence since the Meiji era.
In addition, a paper bag decorated with a drawing from the Meiji era will be presented to those who apply for the experience.
The freshly baked dorayaki is especially popular with both domestic and international visitors, as most of them have never had it before.
We offer an experience and space that is perfect for creating wonderful memories for everyone.
