Experience making fresh Japanese sweets (nerikiri “kneaded sweets”) at a sweets specialty shop!

The tea ceremony has a long history in Sendai since the castle town was founded over 400 years ago. Traditional Japanese sweets are an essential part of Sendai’s local tea culture. Japanese Patisserie MORIYA has been making customers smile with their high-quality sweets for over half a century. Our shop is located next to the ancient Mutsu Kokubunji Temple, Yakushido. We want visitors to appreciate traditional sweets on a deeper level by experiencing traditional sweets-making for themselves.

In this experience, participants will make two kinds of seasonal sweets (with flowers and traditional motifs). Make two of each kind, for a total of four. A friendly expert instructor will carefully guide you during the experience, so even children will be able to try making sweets with confidence.

After you finish, you can take the sweets home with you.
(Alternatively, eat the sweets in our lounge area.)
