I really enjoyed your autumn wagashi making class! You're a great teacher and I liked that you divided the lesson in easy steps and I made three pretty sweets all by myself under your guidance. Thank you for sharing lots of useful tips! I was glad to meet such an open and friendly person and I enjoyed our chat about the Japanese food and culture. I had a great time and will continue making wagashi at home. Thank you and I wish you all the best in 2020! :)
