■Title: Let's Make Natural Miso-dama Balls and Learn the Secrets of Chopstick Usage!

■Venue: Will be notified individually after official booking. 

■Contents: Did you know that a cup of simple miso soup will help you keep fit? As a Japanese koji rice malt master, I want you to enjoy miso soup without any effort. A miso-dama ball is the answer. It’s easy and fun to make. If you keep some of them in stock, you can just put one in a cup and pour hot water over it for instant miso soup.

   In this traditional hands-on Japanese food workshop, we’ll learn how to make colorful miso-dama balls. In addition, you’ll learn through a lecture on why fresh miso is so good for your gut health and helps raise your immunity. Let’s explore the ingredients of miso with a koji mister and a Japanese food dietician! After the workshop, we’ll enjoy a simple meal in the Japanese ichiju-issai style.

   Also, we will demonstrate how to use chopsticks appropriately. If you know the correct usage, you'll be more confident when you are invited by Japanese family for dinner. We'll show you how to use so that you can practice until you feel comfortable. Feel free to ask us any questions during the session!  

■Fee:  4,320 JPY/person (tax included)

■Reservation: Required 

Attention: Minimum necessary number of people is three.
