Cooking Class Menu



Nerikiri is made from white beans
You put red bean paste inside and make a ball.
And make a pattern on it with a tool.
Nerikiri is beautiful and shows Japanese nature and season.



You put matcha powder in a tea ceremony bowl and whisk with a tea whisk to drink. The matcha flavor is very nice.

  • 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 cooking class,



you will make a traditional Japanese sweet called Nerikiri. The dough for nerikiri is white because it is made from white beans, but it is colored with dye powder from natural plants.
Knead and roll it. Spread it out into a circle, put red bean paste inside and roll it up again.
A pattern is applied to the rolled object using a tool. The patterns represent the seasons and nature of Japan.
This time you make and enjoy three sakura (cherry blossoms) nerikiri.



Place matcha powder in the tea ceremony bowl, pour hot water and whisk with a bamboo whisk.
The finished matcha has a very nice scent.

Finally, we can enjoy matcha and nerikiri!

Hi! I have a handmaking experience class of Wagashi in Yokohama, Japan. Do you know Wagashi? Wagashi is Japanese traditional sweets made of Anko (redbeanpaste).
It's very healthy! Ahd it means Japanese nature and season. It looks very colorful and beautiful. I would like to get to know Japanese culture more by enjoying my Wagashi class and Macha (Green Tea) class.
Would you like to enjoy Wagashi and Macha with me?
I'm looking forward to seeing you!

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our sweets making class with Yukiko! She was a wonderful hostess and very patient as we were late in arriving. Her skills in making the sweets are impressive and we had great fun trying ourselves. We now appreciate the skill that goes into making such delicacies works of art. It was a most delightful experience which we highly recommend to others! Thank you Yukiko for taking care of us!

Yuki was so kind and inviting to us. She is a very warm, friendly and knowledgeable person. We learned so much about how to make wagashi and even left with a bag of treats! The instructions were extremely clear and given in perfect English, so you shouldn't have any concerns when signing up. She's a beautiful human being and I highly recommend her!
