Experience Details
Higashi candies are typical Japanese wagashi sweets made from high quality sugar from Shikoku island. They're colorful and chalky, and very cute! With intricate handmade designs, higashi are both delicious and beautiful, making them the perfect sweet to be used in a Japanese tea ceremony. The dry quality of these candies perfectly counteracts the refreshing and bitter taste of matcha green tea. For those who are visiting the beautiful island of Miyajima, this higashi making sweet class would be a perfect activity to break up the day! Learn how to make your own higashi sweets during this Sweet Higashi Making Class in Miyajima, where you’ll make these delicate sweets from scratch, and then eat them with a delicious cup of green tea. Plus, you’ll wear a kimono while you’re at it, as this class includes a Japanese kimono wearing, an opportunity to try on a beautiful kimono before you join the higashi making class. Join this Sweet Higashi Making Class in Miyajima for a fun double activity.

Experience Location
Sitting just off of Hiroshima City and officially named Itsukushima, Miyajima literally translates to “shrine island” in Japanese, as it’s a small island home to the famous Itsukushima Shinto Shrine. Proudly one of Japan’s three most beautiful views, Itsukushima’s enormous and iconic red torii gate stands tall emerging from the ocean. Miyajima is walkable on foot, and is home to plenty of street food and a number of other religious sites such as Daishoin and Senjokaku. The background of Mount Misen offers leafy hiking trails and a gorgeous view down onto the quaint local town.
