Oyaki is a steamed bun made from buckwheat flour and stuffed with seasonal fillings. This snack is thought to have been a way to preserve fresh produce longer and remain popular today.
In the northern Ibaraki area, oyaki were traditionally made by baking the buns in a sunken hearth. Nowadays, Japanese homes don't have hearths, so oyaki are usually steamed or baked in the oven. In addition to traditional combinations of seasonal vegetables, modern oyaki are often stuffed with fruit or sweet red bean paste!
If you'd like to make your own oyaki, head to Daigo Oyaki Cooking School in Daigo! Housed in an old school building from the Meiji Era, it is the perfect setting to try your hand at this traditional Japanese dish. The school also has a shop and restaurant.
