2 – 3 pm: Natto Making

*Held only in Japanese
You may have wondered if you can make your own natto at home. Well good news, you totally can, with no fancy gadgets needed! From one package of store-bought natto (required for natto fungus) combined with other easy-to-acquire ingredients, you can make more natto (just like you make your own yogurt)!
