What you'll do

I'm a specialist in Japanese confections called Wagashi. These sweets are traditionally served with tea and are made from different plant ingredients. I frequently visit the Ningyocho district of Tokyo to research different types of Wagashi. We will visit several shops in this historic district that specialize in tofu, tea, yakitori (skewered chicken), pickles, and, of course, Wagashi. I will present a brief history, introduce you to my favorite Wagashi, and help you find your favorite to make the perfect souvenir. You can expect to experience food and culture that stretches from the present back 100 years. We will also visit several shrines and temples. Visits to Ningyocho are always inspiring for me and I hope to make your visit to this area one of your most memorable Tokyo experiences.

Where you'll be

We will meet at the exit of the Ningyocho Station. Our first stop will be the Suitengumae Temple. We will continue to a Ningyo Yaki shop to enjoy a cake shaped like a doll stuffed with bean jam. From there, we will stroll along the streets and check out several of my favorite Wagashi shops.
