Experience Details
Learn how to make taiyaki, a beloved wagashi (traditional Japanese sweet) that is thought to have originated in Tokyo. This cute, fish-shaped treat is often compared to a waffle, and it is stuffed with all manner of sweet fillings from custard cream to the traditional anko (red bean paste). This experience will also allow you to experiment with other fun and funky flavors, like cheese, Japanese curry, and even natto or kimchi! The unassuming exterior can conceal all sorts of creative flavors and mix-ins, making it perfect for a game of Russian roulette. So, feel free to bring your own crazy additions like wasabi or karashi (spicy mustard) to up the ante. First, we’ll watch an instructional video to prepare you for the taiyaki making lesson. Then, we’ll get started on the dough, making it from scratch. After heating up the special taiyaki hot plate, which turns out perfectly fish-shaped taiyaki every time, you’ll use traditional Japanese tools like “chakkiri” to pour the batter and “ansashi” to portion the red bean paste. After your 6 taiyaki have cooked, you can create a delicious taiyaki tower, topped with fluffy whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Located in Asakusa, an area of Tokyo known for historic temples and shrines and its old-school feel, our store is furnished to suit the neighborhood. It is decorated in the traditional Japanese style, making it an Instagrammable spot to take commemorative photos or videos. With attractive sliding paper doors and traditional floor seating, you’ll feel immersed in this Asakusa-style atmosphere.
