I am fascinated by the beauty of WAGASHI, which is expressive of the four seasons and nature. My creations are boundless as there is so much variety and sophistication in WAGASHI techniques. I have been trained in traditional WAGASHI with a renowned teacher, and contemporary WAGASHI with a rising star teacher. I am a certified master in making WAGASHI. I make custom order sweets, offer demonstrations, exhibit, and also teach WAGASHI making in the USA and Japan.” – Toshiko Sugii Steffes
