With students

I had a chance to teach Wagashi at Tsuda University. Thanks to Professor Shinkai, it was a great occasion to teach Wagashi to students those who probably work overseas , hoping they can introduce and enjoy Wagashi in future. Just happy to see their lively faces throughout the session.
