Bring Edible Art to Life at This Hands-On Wagashi Workshop

 

Sweet-toothed cultural treats washed down with tea await in Takamatsu

 

More often than not, Japanese sweets are exquisitely shaped and shaded and wasanbon — a sugar confection originating from the island of Shikoku and served with green tea — is no exception.

The workshop, in English and guided by the daughter of a master woodworker, sees participants use her father’s painstakinglycrafted wooden molds to create sublimely sweet works of art.
It will also shed light on the traditional Japanese tea culture, with which wasanbon is synonymous. Rounding off the class, your host will whisk you up a cup of frothy matcha tea so you can savor multiple varieties of wasanbon as they are meant to be enjoyed.
