Wagashi: Kiku (Chrysanthemum) from Nerikiri dough.
Nerikiri dough is wrapped around a bean paste filling to create a sweet that looks like kiku, a flower that blooms in Autumn. Participants get to make three sweets, which should be consumed on the day that they are made. This time we use a microwave oven. We can make it easily.
Tea : Green tea or Houji tea
Watch an experienced teacher show you how to make wagashi from scratch.
Make the sweets under expert supervision.
Taste the confections together with a cup of tea from award-winning Kyoto tea merchant Rishouen. Participants will make 2-3 sweets to sample in class and to take home with them. Recipes in English will also be provided.
Time: 2pm – 3pm
Wagashi Issho is a classroom conveniently located in central Kyoto that introduces participants to traditional Japanese confectionery.
Sweets have been part of life in Japan for thousands of years. They appear as offerings at festivals and religious ceremonies, are served at traditional tea gatherings and are, of course, enjoyed as everyday snacks.
At Wagashi Issho, you can learn to make these popular treats as well as the delicate confections of chado – the Way of Tea – which has shaped the development of Japanese confectionery.
