Learn the history of traditional confections in the old town

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.

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.

It was great to meet Kaori and going on the wagashi tour! It was amazing to discover sweets shops and learning about the history of every one and what makes their food special. I would've never discovered Ningyocho or the shops Kaori had shown us if I didn't go on this tour! She is kind and considerate, also taking the time and going out of her way to help me locate a curry shop I wanted to go to right after the tour. She's an awesome guide and the tour was great! Thanks Kaori!

It was a very nice tour. First, Kaori gave us a short introduction to the history of the Ningyocho district. Then we visited a shop that sells ningyoyaki, which is a sweet filled with red bean paste. It is shaped in the form of the head of one of seven lucky gods of the district. Kaori explained which one we got, e.g. god of beauty or wealth etc. We were also allowed to take a look at the machine that stirs the red bean paste in the shop. Next, Kaori showed us a shrine and a temple and explained the differences in behavior when you visit them. She also showed us two clocks whose parts start moving when the full hour is reached. Later on, we were able to watch this spectacle. Then, she brought us to a shop that is famous for its crackers and Kaori gave us a sample of a traditional kind of cracker called senbei. After that, we sampled a cookie called kawara senbei, which looked like an ancient money coin. In the following, we went to a shrine dedicated to children. There was a Kappa statue and one with a dog and Kaori explained what these mean. Then we reached the end of our tour and could pick either a wagashi in a shape that was especially made for autumn or a dorayaki. Kaori bought us one of these as a souvenir. In between we also were given time to buy sweets at the shops she showed us. The only thing that I found a little sad was that, with six people taking part, it was not always easy to acoustically understand what Kaori said. Maybe this could be improved. Looking back at my expectations before the tour, I would have liked to learn even more about the history of wagashi or even eat wagashi while drinking green tea but, of course, because of the time limit, this was not possible. Instead, Kaori included many things that I did not expect and she surprised me with very interesting aspects. Therefore, I am happy that I could take part in this tour and can recommend it!

Kaori is an expert in Japanese sweets and desserts, and her expertise shined as she took us on a guided tour in the neighborhood of Ningyocho visiting not only the hidden traditional landmark sweets shops but also to experience the confectionery masters making traditional Japanese snacks that date back hundreds of years, still using the same old schook methods.

かおりさんは、日本人でもあまり知らないこの町の歴史や、オススメスポットをとても良く知っていて、丁寧に説明してくれました! お店のかたとも仲良しで、和気あいあいとおしゃべり。焼きたてのお菓子をほおばりながら、とても楽しく過ごせました。 すべてのゲストのかたにオススメしたい体験です!

The walk offered by Kaori was one of the most culturally immersive things I've done while in Japan. We got to see many temples and shrines, and Kaori explained various traditions and rituals, which was fascinating. We stopped at several shops to taste variety of sweets and snacks, all with unique flavor. We also saw the sweets being made in a couple of shops! Kaori is very attentive to her guests, and is a truly wonderful host. Book without hesitation!!
