Experience Details

Enter the world of wagashi, Japan’s traditional confectionery, through this hands-on class perfect for all ages and skill levels. Nerikiri wagashi is a classic Japanese sweet prominently featured in tea ceremonies. Its glutinous rice flour and bean paste dough makes nerikiri easy to mold into creative shapes that reflect the seasons and other aspects of nature. Mari, your host, will teach you all you need to know to create these intricate sweets in a 30-minute class. After meeting Mari at her home near Aoto Station in Tokyo, you’ll don an apron and start making the dough for nerikiri. In keeping with tradition, all ingredients you’ll be using are entirely plant-based – with no eggs, dairy, or wheat flour. The creamy red bean paste you’ll be using comes from a renowned sweet bean paste factory in Kyoto. After making your nerikiri wagashi and learning insights about Japanese culture from Mari, you’ll eat your sweets with your classmates in the tranquil setting of Mari’s Tokyo kitchen! No matter your skill level, Mari will guide you every step of the way in making your nerikiri wagashi. Having taught homemade wagashi classes to over 800 students, including adults and children, Mari is dedicated to sharing Japanese culture and flavors in a fun, educational way. Experience flow: - Brief class introduction - Nerikiri workshop class begins - Enjoy your handmade nerikiri
