Wasanbon craft activity near Kotohira-gu Shrine
Wasanbon is a type of sugar traditionally produced in the eastern part of Shikoku, mainly in Kagawa and Tokushima Prefecture. The characteristics of Wasanbon are a unique flavor and fine particles that melt smoothly in your mouth. The name "Wasanbon" derives from the confectionary process, where sugar is polished three (san) times on a tray (bon).
In the craft activity, Wasanbon is mixed with water, kneaded well and put into molds. Half-dried Wasanbon has a supreme flavor that can only be enjoyed on the spot by class participants.
After the activity, you can take your Wasanbon home in a beautiful box. Why don't you give it to someone as a souvenir?
