Welcome to the world of wagashi, pretty to look at and delicious to eat!

At a locally loved wagashi shop, you will be gently taught how to make wagashi called “neri-kiri”.
You will learn the basic techniques using special tools, such as coloring, punching out with a mold, and squeezing to make patterns.
You can make four wagashi in about two hours.

For group classes, the number of people, time required, and number of pieces to be made are negotiable. A minimum total of 30 pieces is required.
