"Wasanbon" is refined sugar and is a specialty of Kagawa Prefecture. You will make twelve Wasanbon treats (4 different types) called "higashi" using our wooden molds made by a traditional craftsman. Out of the 12 pieces you make, you will sample two of them with some authentic matcha tea. The remaining 10 pieces are packed in a gift box and you can take them home as a souvenir.
1. You will use artistic wooden molds carved by a traditional craftsman! You won't be able to stop yourself from admiring the delicate molds.
2. The elegant sweetness is the charm of Wasanbon. You will mix Wasanbon with water, knead it well, and put it into the molds.
3. Next you will smooth the surface of the Wasanbon in the molds. Sound difficult? Don't worry our staff will be happy to help you!
4. Wasanbon taken out of the molds and dried is called higashi. Half-dried Wasanbon has a supreme flavor that you will have the opportunity to sample.
5. We are sure you will appreciate both the beauty of traditional Japanese crafts and sweets. Your freshly made higashi will be packed in a gift box.
6. We will make Macha tea for you. Please enjoy your higashi with matcha tea.
