Experience Details
Made with simple ingredients (sweet white bean paste and glutinous rice flour), wagashi can be enjoyed by vegans, vegetarians, and Muslims alike! And don’t be fooled by the name “glutinous rice flour” because this wagashi class is actually gluten-free! A delicious and aesthetically-pleasing plant-based treat, wagashi are very traditional Japanese sweets that pair best with a cup of tea, and often accompany the Japanese tea ceremony. While this Osaka Wagashi Making Class includes matcha making, it is not a tea ceremony experience and the matcha making is a very simple component of the class. Still, learning to make wagashi is a beautiful way to connect to Japanese culture and make something steeped in history and traditions. Often, wagashi reflect the current season with motifs such as cherry blossoms and maple leaves. It’s almost too beautiful to eat, and as an added bonus it’s naturally vegetarian, vegan, and Halal!

Experience Location
Namba Station is the heart of southern Osaka. Bars, restaurants, and street food stalls on the colorful Dotombori entertain party goers and foodies late into the night, with the red light district a few streets beyond. For a different atmosphere, quaint bars and izakayas nestled within the narrow Hozenji Yokocho Alley lead down to Hozenji Temple, with a number of nostalgic museums and theaters throughout Namba as well. High-street fashion and bargain stores battle it out inside the Shinsaibashi Shopping Arcade and the Nama Parks Mall complex, while teen fashion dominates Amerikamura.
