ABOUT US

Naho

Hi! My name is Naho. From an early age, cooking and baking have always been what I enjoy the most. For me, they are both creative and social activities that allow me to show my appreciation and well wishes to the people around me. When I was at university in Tokyo, I lived in an international dormitory and developed a love for sharing food and desserts as a way to bring people together and to build strong friendships. So, where some people may just see it as a mere dessert, for me, sharing food has the power to make people’s everyday lives a bit brighter.

It has been over 3 years since I moved to Belgrade, and now I want to start something new of my own. To share a bit of my culture in the hope of contributing something small to the city I now call home. Something that I enjoy. Something that is new and interesting to the people of Belgrade.

Then the idea popped into my mind, “traditional Japanese desserts with a twist!” — and thus Wagokoro was born. Wagokoro currently focuses on creating Japanese confectionary called “daifuku” (also known as “mochi dessert” in English). Traditionally, most standard daifuku in Japan consists of sweet red bean (azuki) paste wrapped in a chewy dough made from glutinous rice. Wagokoro creates daifuku with a twist, in a way that can be enjoyed by all people, both those who have never tried them, as well as those who already adore traditional Japanese desserts. Furthermore, in order to meet the highest standard of Japanese dessert-making, we first selected excellent quality imported glutinous rice flour and minimized the amount of added sugar to allow the natural flavors of the ingredients to shine through.

The name “Wagokoro” (和心) is a combination of two words, “wa” and “gokoro.” “Wa” means harmony, peaceful, relaxing, and also is used as an adjective to describe something that is Japanese. “Gokoro” means heart, mind, spirit. My wish is that our Wagokoro desserts contribute in a small way to bringing such feelings to people’s hearts, one sweet indulgence at a time.

What is Daifuku/mochi-dessert?

Wagokoro currently focuses on creating traditional Japanese confectionary called “Daifuku” (also known as mochi-dessert in English), which literally means “big happiness”! :) It consists of a round chewy dough made of glutinous rice, usually stuffed with a sweet red bean filling made from “azuki” red bean. Daifuku may also come in a variety of fillings such as chocolate, fruits, ice cream and so on. Wagokoro adds a twist to traditional Japanese desserts. We want to create our own original flavors in a way that can be enjoyed by people who have never tried these desserts before, as well as by those who already adore traditional Japanese desserts.

In order to meet the highest standard of Japanese dessert-making, we first selected excellent quality imported glutinous rice flour and minimized the amount of added sugar to allow the natural flavors of the ingredients to shine through. Each Daifuku is carefully hand-wrapped one-by-one by our artisans to ensure only the highest quality of production.
