Experience Details
Traditional Japanese wagashi sweets are known for being visually striking, but few are as eye-catching as nerikiri. Soft and moist, nerikiri are molded by hand into bite-sized, colorful pieces with delicate motifs, usually inspired by nature and highlighting the passing of the seasons. With no overpowering flavors or overbearing sweetness, nerikiri are well-balanced and have a pleasant, smooth texture. In this hands-on class in a private home in a quiet suburb of Yokohama, you’ll learn the basics of the nerikiri-making process with an experienced instructor. From making the dough with white bean flour and mochi powder, among other ingredients, to shaping each piece into a seasonal motif, you’ll master the art of making nerikiri and enjoy your sweet confections the traditional way, with a bowl of steaming tea, either matcha green tea or another variety. Itinerary: -Arrive at the venue and meet your instructor. -Your instructor will introduce themselves and give a brief overview of wagashi culture and its ingredients before demonstrating how to prepare nerikiri wagashi. -Make your own four pieces of nerikiri: learn how to make the dough and shape each piece into a seasonal motif -Take photos and eat the sweets you made with a bowl of matcha green tea This experience takes place in a private home in a residential neighborhood of Yokohama, in Kanagawa Prefecture, about 40 minutes by train from Shibuya Station (20 min train ride, 20 min walk). After the experience, feel free to explore this lesser-known area and get a glimpse of the local lifestyle. If you are left craving more sweets, worry not — your instructor will share the recipes, so you can make more nerikiri again anytime!
