  • Green Tea

    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

  • Tea Ceremony

    Tea Ceremony

    The Japanese tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition closely tied to Zen Buddhist principles, and a popular way to experience Japanese culture. There are several variations on this ritual. At its base, powdered green tea (matcha) is prepared and served in accordance with strict rules. Oftentimes, wagashi (Japanese sweets) is served alongside the bitter green tea.

Cooking Class Information

In this wagashi making and tea ceremony experience, you will learn the cultural significance of mochi and traditions before you start cooking. Then you will learn how to make mochi (rice cakes) using glutinous rice flour. Using the mochi you will learn how to make strawberry Daifuku mochi and Dango (mochi balls on skewers)+ two kinds of seasonal "Nerikiri wagashi"—traditional Japanese sweets. You will learn how to shape the dough into a seasonal motif. (The dough will be made and colored in advance but you will have access to the tutorial video) After you've made the Nerikiri wagashi, you are able to taste your creations with a bowl of matcha green tea or take them with you in a special box.
Made from plant-based products, this class is appropriate for vegetarians with vegan options available

All cooking classes by Satoko



My name is Satoko, a bilingual Japanese certified instructor of WPA(Wagashi Promotion Association) teaching Japanese sweets "Nerikiri" and "Mochi" making at my home to people from around the world. My Wagashi School name is "ankotopia", where you can learn not only making Japanese sweets, but also learn about Japanese culture and its role in our tradition. Offering a variety of one-day classes from beginners to advanced students. I try to make my recipes simple as possible, so that you can easily recreate it back home.

I had lived overseas over 20 years, and through my career, I notice that many foreigners are interested in Japanese homemade food and love to meet Japanese people.
So, I decided to open a cooking school to invite those tourists to experience Japanese culture at home.

My cooking class is held in a small local town, where you can enjoy visiting lots of small shops, cafes, supermarkets, shrines, and even a historical public bath! before and after the lesson! (My handmade local map is provided!) You will encounter a more peaceful Japanese neighborhood as opposed to the busy city life!

Classes start between 10:30am to 16pm Mon-Sat. according to your request time.

Our mochi making class was very easy to follow and Satoko was a very warm host and attentive teacher!! She taught us many interesting Japanese rituals and facts about the culture as well which was a very nice surprise. She even set up a traditional backdrop for us to take pictures of our creations with which was very thoughtful of her. Thank you Satoko!
