What you'll do

In this experience you can enjoy traditional Japanese confectionery sweets and Dorayaki sweets and Matcha.

First of all, I will demonstrate and make a sample fresh confectionery, and then teach them how to make them and make several fresh confections.

Next, I will demonstrate "Dorayaki" and teach you how to make it with reference to the sample and make several "Dorayaki".

After that, you will be asked to put the finished "Namagashi" and "Dorayaki" in our original souvenir bag and take it home. * We will add tea from a PET bottle.

The confectionery changes every month to "Nerikiri" or "Daifuku" depending on the season. Please contact us at the time of booking.

Daifuku of the season is Daifuku of “strawberry・raw chocolate” in winter ~ spring, summer only “pineapple・grapes・sweet Mandarin” autumn ~ year-end “chestnut”.

I am Takanori Kanazawa.

Founded in 1911 · It is the 4th generation of Kanazawa Juouken which provides "taste and tradition" which was established in 1911 and was handed over in 109 years.

After I graduated from a Japanese confectionery vocational school and acquired the certificate of confectionery hygienist, I practiced for 11 years at a long-established Japanese confectionery store in Kanagawa prefecture · Aichi prefecture. In the past 25 years as a cafeterian craftsman, I came back to my family's Kanazawa Juouken and continued to make Japanese sweets and pastries for 13 years, focusing on the succession of traditional taste and development of new products.

The creed as the fourth generation is "Japanese sweets of my hometown keeping watching continuously”.

Experience venue is 5 minutes from Koyaguchi Sta JR Wakayama line.
If you are in the distance, there is a guest house around JR Koyaguchi Station.

Auxiliary host Genichiro will support translation.

練りきりとドラ焼きを体験しました。 特にドラ焼きが簡単そうで生地を掬うのにコツが必要でみんなでワイワイしながら作ったので楽しかったです。作りたてのどら焼きをお抹茶でいただきました。本当に美味しかったです。 店主の方とのお話も楽しくあっという間の1時間半でした。 また、お店でのお餅をつくる作業も見学させてもらえて、とても興味深かったです。 ちなみに、体験とは別に終わった後にお店の商品を買いましたが、きな粉団子が柔らかくて、本当に絶品でした。これは絶対に食べたほうが良い品です。滞在中にもう一度買いにいきます!

Absolutely recommend!! It was very fun to take part in something I've never done before and Takanori's warmth and personality made me comfortable with the process. I felt a little nervous about not messing up the cooking, but he put me at ease! It was a wonderful experience and we had many laughs. Plus the dorayaki and daifuku were delicious!!!

What can I say about Takanori-san's dorayaki cooking and daifuku making experience. Best Airbnb experience I've ever had. I got so much value from learning from Takanori-san and everyone was so friendly. There was a very nice translator too so communication isn't a problem. It is a must-do experience and can only get more popular (they are relatively new to doing these experiences but highly qualified) thank you so much everybody!

非常推薦給想要親身體驗日本文化的旅客👍🏻可以親手製作和菓子和銅鑼燒、真的是非常難得的體驗! 不懂日文的朋友也不用怕, 店家有翻譯機還有翻譯人員幫忙翻譯。 另外師傅非常親切,很細心清晰地教導我們,製作過程毫無壓力,就算店家位置比較遠,也十分值得花一點時間過來參加😁 很好的回憶,讚! 完成後店家還會提供很漂亮的包裝跟紙袋, 成品可以帶回家當土産💛
