Guest Confectioner Takeshi Inoue
Members of the public are invited to attend an exclusive demonstration with Takeshi Inoue, a wagashi artisan (a Japanese confectioner). He is the 3rd generation owner of Baika-tei in Kagurazaka, Tokyo which was established in 1935 by his grandfather. Takeshi creates all his wagashi using organic ingredients and uses his designs to express the four seasons and the beauty of nature.
In November 2016, Takeshi Inoue was awarded Tokyo Artisan Excellence status by the Tokyo Metroplitan Government, a symbol of his Master status. He also focuses on using traditional Japanese ingredients like adzuki beans, and mochi rice dough. Traditional wagashi are also suitable for vegetarians and vegans as no animal products, like milk or gelatin, are used in the production.
