We are delighted to invite you to join a wagashi demonstration and workshop conducted by 3 experts from Matsue-gashi Association, Japan, led by Mr. Yamaguchi Kenji. Wagashi is the Japanese traditional confectionary usually made of natural ingredients such as mochi (glutinous rice), azuki (red bean paste) and fruits. Participants will experience the techniques of making wagashi including bake, boil and steam. There is also a short talk-session on history of wagashi and its role in Japanese culture. Participants can taste the wagashi, served with authentic Japanese traditional maccha (green tea) at the end of the session. The entire session will be held in Japanese with English interpretation.

My notes from Wagashi Workshop.

Japan’s Wagashi Association has many information on its members. Toraya, a Japanese confectionary company since 16th century has an online shop and a Paris shop. Minamoto Kitchoan has many branches, in Hong Kong, Taipei and Singapore as well. Minatoya and Saiundo has some beautiful wagashi featured. SFGate has some wagashi recipes to try out. Beautiful wagashi images on Flickr here, here and here. The Manga CookBook also features wagashi for kids. If you plan to visit Kyoto, remember to visit Kyotofoodie to find out more about wagashi shops. Kyoto prefecture has a wagashi page. Japan government internet tv has a nice wagashi video here. Blue Lotus made some ume jam which maybe great for making wagashi. Yasuko-san has a recipe for red bean soup. Obachan from Kochi regulary features wagashi.
