【DETAILS】

You can experience an authentic cooking experience of baking pirozhki in Hakodate, where the cultures of Russia and Japan have mixed.

The first Russian consulate in Japan was established in Hakodate in 1858, and people fascinated by Russian food culture began to spread Russian dishes newly arranged using local ingredients. 

Pirozhki, a stuffed bread you will cook in this experience, is popular in Japan. Deep-frying is a common cooking method in other areas of Japan, but the traditional oven-baked cooking is still in use here in Hakodate. 

After you come to the café, the staff will give you a simple explanation. The ingredients and seasonings are already prepared neatly, just like paints on a pallet. You will mix the ingredients with a spoon as you like, and make a few kinds of fillings. 

The original recipe includes unique ingredients from Hakodate, such as Ezo-shika (Hokkaido deer) and Ezo-maitake mushroom is dedicated to the authentic cooking. The flavor has been enjoyed by not only Japanese tourists but also international students from Russia, the home of the dishes.

Let's try Hakodate's specialty cuisine that has nurtured the original culture, as the settlement of people from all over the world.

Also, during the baking time, a friendly guide will take you on a safe and enjoyable tour. We will take you to not only Hakodate's famous churches, but also to hidden spots that do not appear in guidebooks. This tour is recommended for those who want to enjoy the deep side of Hakodate! This will be a Hakodate trip that you will enjoy with all your senses!
