Got kids (11 & 12 yr old boys) to experience on Wagashi making in Kyoto. Class was conducted in Japanese only. English print outs were provided about the sweets to be made. Great rainy day experience. Counter staff were friendly.

Our hotel recommended this activity to my wife and me on a rainy day in Kyoto. This turned out to be a really great treat (pun intended). The chef/teacher didn't speak much English, but it was relatively straight-forward to follow along with the chef's actions,...More

This is a great way to spend a few hours - and learn about traditional sweets and how they are made. No matter how unsophisticated your items look compared to professional ones, you can't help but be proud that you managed to even have it...More

Maybe it was my misunderstanding but there were a couple of things that disappointed me. First, the flyer I found was all in English so I expected some English would be spoken. And then when I checked out the place the day before the class...More

This was a great activity to take the kids to (2000Y each). All of the instruction was in Japanese, but relatively easy to follow as the chef made his instructions visual and explicit. We made 4 types of Japanese sweets which actually looked quite exquisite....More

During this 90 minute-to-2 hour class you will be able to make four different traditional Japanese sweets. These vary by the season. You will not be able to recreate them, as the shop does a whole lot of prep work so that those of us...More
