[WORKSHOP] Sakura mochi (Cherry Blossom Crepe Roll) Cooking Party

Let's make Sakura mochi (a crepe roll with sweet bean paste covered with a cherry blossom leaf) together!

WHEN: Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 (14:00-15:30)
WHERE: Furocho Chiiki Care Plaza 3F Cooking room and Volunteer Room
(about 10 minutes from JR/Blue Line Kannai station or 5 minutes from Blue Line Isezaki Chojamachi station)

CHARGE: We'll split the material cost (should be 300 yen or less per person)

Send e-mail to us (* (please replace * with @) 
with your name, the number of your company (the number of children and their ages), and your contact (cell phone number). 

Flour, rice powder, sugar, red bean (azuki) paste, red food coloring, vegetable oil, salted cherry blossom leaves (edible) 

Please take off your shoes and use the slippers at the entrance. Strollers can enter. There's an elevator as well. 
The Volunteer room is a sort of semi-open space, but they'll install a barrier to avoid little ones to get out. However, no baby-sitting this time, so please watch your children. 
The cooking room and the Volunteer room is on the same floor but not next to each other. And the cooking room is not very large, so we won't be able to have everyone cook at the sometime. 
Our plan is that adults prepare the crepes and children roll bean paste with them and cherry blossom leaves.

[ACTIVITY REPORT] Yumegaoka Strawberry Farm Visit 2017

We visited Yumegaoka Farm in Izumi-ward, Yokohama, again on 19th March. 
Unfortunately, some families couldn't make it for sick kids (lots of kids, even adults, fall sick in this season) . 

For 30 minutes, we continued eating strawberries!!

Since kids wanted to play, we walked to the river-side park in front of Izumi Chuo station (Sotetsu Line, next stop from Yumegaoka station). 

As it was a beautiful Spring day, kids enjoyed playing in the water!

The park is just in front of the station: we the train runs on the bridge. There are a lot of cherry blossoms in the park, so it must be very beautiful in a week or two. 

It was a wonderful outing!
