Wagashi confectionery is a daily life for us. In the old times, rural grandmothers and grandfathers ate various sweets, such as Kusamochi (dumpling made by grasses), Ohagi (glutinous rice ball with soy bean paste), and also edible wild plants.

At Suzumeya we teach how to make traditional Japanese wagashi confectioneries. We travel through Japanese rural villages to look for local ingredients, and special recipes.

In this sweets & tea party plan, we can have a small tea party with a special kind of tea produced in rural Japan. We would like to share rural livelihood and its tradition to you.

If weather permits, let's go visit a park nearby for picnic with tea and sweets we make!
