"Give life to a radiance woman, turn your hobby into wealth"
~ Bringing the lifework called SALONAISE to the woman of the future~

The idea of the Japan Salonaise Association (JSA) is to aspire women to develop their own hobbies while raising children or working. Even beginners can start their own classes and share their knowledge with like-minded friends in their spare time.

 

JSA was founded in Japan in August of 2013. In addition to developing the concept of turning hobbies into income, our aim is to provide technical and operational assistance to the lecturers. 

 

JSA’s lecturers are based on the idea of “we are friends, not competitors”. They discuss with each other, learn from each other, grow together, and continue to radiate in this field.

In this course, you can learn the techniques of making Higashi (dried sweet) and Hannamagashi (half-raw sweet) which is dry and contains very little moisture, and thus keeps relatively longer than other kinds of wagashi. In these 6 lessons, you will gain the skills necessary to become a lecturer.

Easiness and appearance are the keys in making Higashi and Hannamagashi, but as a Japanese culture it is essential to carefully protect the traditional techniques, background, and delicacy of Japanese sweets that have a long history. Based on this idea, this course is jointly designed and supervised by Japanese sweets craftsmen following the practice of the "Japanese Nerikiri Art Certificate Course" and "Mizugashi Art Certificate Course.

 

This course is supervised by Mr Naito Takayuki a long-established Japanese confectionery shop founded in Ashiya in 1918, "Okashiji Kuchiya Toyomitsu". He sympathized with JSA's association philosophy and policy, and cooperated with JSA with the desire to convey the tradition, beauty, and splendor of Japanese sweets to the future and overseas. He assisted in the design of this course.

Mr Naito said, "this course is a combination of traditional Higashi and Hannamagashi techniques and a new technique developed independently, and is designed with a focus on the four seasons and art. We make Higashi and Hannamagashi that have different finishes depending on the temperature and humidity, in a way that is easy to make at home.

 

In recent years, the number of craftsmen who make Higashi and Hannamagashi has decreased year by year. However, it is one of the traditional Japanese sweets with a long history. I sincerely hope that through this course, everyone can learn and enjoy this wonderful traditional Japanese culture of Japanese confectionery."
