Experience making Japanese dry confectionery made with Wasanbon

Sweets workshop





  • Wasanbon is the finest white sugar
  • A first-hand experience on how to make “Awa Wasanbon”, a confectionary made from sugarcane, at our manufacture Hattori, established in 1864 and only one of four left in Japan.
  • Experience making a type of dried Japanese Sweet
  • The dried sweets can be packed in boxes and used as souvenirs
  • You can make an original, one-of-a-kind souvenir


Our “Wasanbon” confectionary uses only sugarcane from Awa city with no additives. This rare sugarcane is still the same as in 1864, and it is used in traditional Japanese sweets shops. We invite you to make your very own confectionary from our “Wasanbon”! You can choose from about thirty different designs, ranging from traditional, seasonal motives to new and creative ones. It is possible to pack them in a box and take them home as a souvenir, too. The confectionary is low in GI, so it is safe to eat.
