Hello, my name is Kaori.

My passion is wagashi and international cultural exchanges. I lived in Hong Kong for several years.
There were many chances of cultural exchange experiences as Hong Kong is a melting pot and many people from abroad are living there.
I realized unique aspects of Japanese sweets and fun of making and introducing wagashi during my stay there.
I started learning making Japanese sweets since I returned to Japan.
After graduated from a school and got a license of a wagashi instructor, I have been organizing various wagashi workshops
in Tokyo and Hong Kong to introduce one of the traditional Japanese cultures, wagashi.
Let’s make wagashi together. I am looking forward to seeing you at the event.
