Learning the Heart of Japan~ Let's make "Decorative Japanese Sweets" with a Traditional Japanese Artisan!
Hiromori Uchida, the fifth generation head of Ganyudo, is a Japanese confectionery artisan active in Japan and internationally in Singapore, Thailand, and other countries. This time, under his guidance, we will make decorative confections. If you are careful about preserving them, you can display them for about two months, and they look just like Jounama-Gashi, traditional Japanese sweets. Jounama-Gashi is an art form that expresses one's sensibility in a world of only a few centimeters. It is an exceptional opportunity for you to make Jounama-Gashi with top-class artisans. Let's make your Jounama-Gashi with your hands, using professional tools with experiencing craftsmanship.
