We really enjoyed learning how to make nerikiri wagashi from Yasue, who is a skilled and knowledgeable teacher. The class was a highlight of our trip to Kyoto, and we look forward to returning to learn more wagashi designs in the future!

The class was everything I had hoped for, thorough and educational, but still entertaining and engaging. Being a foreigner himself, Randy-Soei was able to more easily explain the phrases and concepts that don't always have a direct translation. He explained the basic intricacies and step by step instructions of formal vs informal tea ceremonies, explained how things used to be done pre-covid and how things have changed, demonstrated the process, all the while giving basic explanations for why things are done, gave us example sweets of what would be served, and then we each got to try our hand at making tea. Then once we looked at our tea and tasted it, he whisked it better so we could experience the difference in taste and texture. I wish I had more free time as I would love to take some classes, so hopefully I can rearrange my schedule in the future and learn how to use my tea supplies properly! 10/10 would recommend for anyone looking to learn more about tea instead of just watching someone make it with little to no explanation along the way.

Wagashi Making Classes in Kyoto

Want to enjoy a sweet part of Kyoto's food culture? Satisfy your sugar cravings in the old capital of Japan with a wagashi making class in Kyoto! Composed of ingredients like sweet bean paste and glutinous rice flour, wagashi are 100% vegan, and usually gluten-free too. Little works of art, Japanese wagashi are traditional sweets shaped into motifs representing the season. For example, uchiwa, or fan-shaped wagashi are popular in the summer in Japan. Wagashi are so beautiful that you may prefer to keep them forever rather than eat them, but wagashi do pair very nicely with a hot cup of tea. They are used in tea ceremonies and accompany a foamy bowl of vibrant green matcha. In Kyoto, high quality Uji matcha complements these edible jewels perfectly! Great for kids, families, and those who love arts and crafts, these wagashi making classes in Kyoto will equip you will the tools and skills you need to make stunning wagashi with your own two hands. Under the attentive guidance of your wagashi making instructor, soon you’ll be confidently shaping and molding these edible artworks!
