Ticket of this event is still available, we wanted this event nice and cozy, so seats are limited, if you are interested, book & secure your spots now. Day 2, I will be sharing the knowledge around Miso. It will be start from making miso paste session, then making 4 different types of Miso soup & learn about Dashi, then last session is Mochi pounding! We will enjoy Mochi with traditional dipping like Natto & grated Daikon, Red bean paste, Kinako (roasted soybeans) and seasoned with Soy sauce (maybe with cheese!).

Mochi pounding is super rare opportunity to enjoy, it is FUN!!!! Join us and enjoy whole day!

You can buy ticket separately (section by section) but I recommend you to attend all day, because it’s all fun and yummy.
