Sweets Making and Onigiri Lunch

We’ll visit a historical and well-known shrine in the downtown atmospheric Nezu area. Then we’ll go to my friend's Wagashi—Japanese sweets—café in Sendagi, where we’ll make two types of traditional Japanese sweets. One is Higashi, a dry sweet, with Wasanbon sugar and the other is Namagashi, a moist sweet with bean paste, using hand-crafted wooden molds. The molds were created by a craftsman granted Ojuhosho—a medal for industriousness—by the Emperor. After making sweets, enjoy a Japanese rice ball lunch called onigiri and tasty Wagashi served with sake, or green tea if you prefer.

About Wagashi Kunpu

Wagashi Kunpu is a different type of tea shop where you can enjoy a pairing of
handmade traditional Japanese sweets with Japanese sake.
Our sweets are also suitable for gifts and souvenirs.

‘‘Wagashi’’ means traditional Japanese sweets.
‘‘Kunpu’’ means early summer breeze that brings you nice aroma of green leaves.

The shop was named Wagashi Kunpu because we are a traditional Japanese sweets shop
that started operation in an early summer season,
and we place high priority on fully utilizing the unique aroma of each ingredient
in making our sweets.

 Pairing of Wagashi with Japanese sake

  If you have never experienced Wagashi and sake pairing,
  you will find how well Wagashi and sake match.
  All our Wagashi products are carefully prepared in-house each day,
  using the best of seasonal ingredients.
  As for Japanese sake, the owner/chef of the shop visits sake breweries located
  in different areas of Japan and selects best sake products
  that are in season and that match best with Wagashi.
  You can enjoy drinking sake from many different brands in our shop.
