Team Canada Women’s Team Wagashi Fundraising

As part of the on-going fundraising efforts towards the World Championships next year, the Team Canada Womens Team will be selling Japanese “wagashi” or cakes over the next few weeks. All orders must be submitted to tozenjikendoclub@shaw.ca by October 31st, 2011.  Orders will be ready for pick up on November 13th, 2011.

All right guys, for those who do not know, in Kendo we have a World Championship every three years. The last one was back in 2009 in São Paulo, Brazil. Next year will be the 15th World Championship, taking place in Novara, Italy. And yes, we have an amazing Women’s Team that will be going and representing Canada! If you would like to show your support for the girls, this fundraiser is the perfect chance!

“Wagashi” (和菓子) is a traditional Japanese confectionery which is often served with tea. Two types of wagashi:


Dorayaki: а red bean pancake which consists of two small pancake-like patties made from castella wrapped around a filling of sweet red bean paste.


Daifuku Mochi: a small round mochi (glutinous rice cake) stuffed with sweet filling, most commonly anko, sweetened red bean paste made from azuki beans.

These wagashi can be great gifts for others, or simply for yourself to munch on while studying for midterms and finals!
