Wagashi Hobby English
- “Wagashi”, meaning Japanese sweets, has been included as a part of Japan’s intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO. It is becoming more and more popular such as, “nerikiri”, “kinton”, rice cakes and so on. Do you know the origin of “wagashi” or the meaning of the shape itself? Originally, it was created in the Edo era and “wagashi” culture has been developing since then. Join us and experience the wonderful world of “wagashi”, a great Japanese tradition!
- When a friend asks you about Japanese traditional culture, one of first things you may think of is “sado”, the Japanese tea ceremony. However, you may find it difficult to explain exactly what “sado” is to your non-Japanese friends. If this is the case, then this session is for you. This session is best fit for those who want to learn the mindset of “sado” as well as learn how to actually make it. You will receive a lecture about “sado” both in English and Japanese with other students.
