Wasanbon is refined sugar and is a specialty of Kagawa Prefecture.  You will make twelve Wasanbon treats (4 different types) called Higashi using the wooden molds made by Mr. Ichihara, a traditional craftsman. Out of the 12 pieces made, you will taste two with Matcha tea.  The remaining 10 pieces are packed in a gift box and can be brought home as a souvenir.

Lesson plan:

  1. You will use artistic wooden molds carved by a traditional craftsman! You can't help admiring the delicate molds.
  2. The elegant sweetness is the charm of Wasanbon. Wasanbon is mixed with water, kneaded well and put into molds. 
  3. Smooth the surface of Wasanbon in the molds. Sounds difficult?  Please don't worry as the staff is happy to help you.
  4. Wasanbon taken out of the molds and dried is called Higashi. Half-dried Wasanbon has a supreme flavor that can be tasted here.
  5. We are sure you will appreciate both the beauty of traditional Japanese crafts and sweets.  Higashi you have made will be packed in a gift box.  Please bring them back home.
  6. We will make Macha tea for you.  Please enjoy Higashi you have made with Matcha.
