Experience Details
The making of handmade sweets in Japan is a long-standing tradition built on skill and craftsmanship of delicate textures and flavors, as well as an appreciation for aesthetics. Translating to “Japanese sweets,” wagashi are traditional sweets treats made from plant-based ingredients, which are vegan and gluten-free. Associated with the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, wagashi are known for having a simple yet sophisticated flavor that complements matcha green tea, but also elevates the humble tea ceremony through with its beautiful seasonal motifs. To make a perfect wagashi treat, the process takes time, requiring patience and careful handiwork, although the results are inevitably satisfying. Mochi is also a quintessential sweet in Japan; a type of rice cake that’s often paired with sweet azuki red bean. Delicate and colorful, wagashi reflects the beauty of nature in Japan, and is seen as one of the most detailed desserts, incorporating elegant artistic characteristics. Learn how to make your own traditional Japanese wagashi and mochi during this Tokyo Wagashi and Mochi Making Class. You’ll make three different types of Japanese sweets where you’ll mix the doughs, beautifully shape them, and decorate your sweets using traditional tools and techniques. Learning about the wagashi and mochi, you’ll make your own traditional Japanese sweets, then enjoy it with a complimentary bowl of matcha green tea (which you will also learn how to make). At the end of class, you can take the rest home with you, a snack for later!
