戸田屋正道さんと和菓子を作ろう Making Wagashi with Mr. Toda

Making Wagashi with Mr. Toda



We were delighted to have Mr. Toda from Todaya Shodo come and teach us how to make wagashi, and then enjoy eating our delicious hard work with a cup of matcha.

We learned the basic skills needed to make a gorgeous cherry blossom shaped jo namagashi, and afterwards Mr. Toda gave a demonstration of his incredible skills. I still can't believe t

hat such beautiful works of art are supposed to be eaten! Thank you so much for coming, I hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!

戸田屋正道三代目の戸田健志さんにお越しいただき、和菓子(上生菓子)作りを教えていただきました。子供たちが作ったさくらの花のかたちの上生菓子と、自分たちで点てた抹茶で贅沢なティータイムを過ごしました。 戸田さんの職人技を目にした時の子どもたちの笑みと歓喜の声。まるでヒーローを囲んでいるようでした。
