I had the best time of my life! Luckily I was all by myself and got an exclusive introduction to the world of bento making! It was real fun and would do it again and again! Don’t miss this class when you are in Tōkyō!

One of my unforetable experiences in Tokyo. The teachers were all very friendly and helpful. The character bento was so cute! The only thing I would change is more clear cut instructions on how to find the place. Google maps led me to the other side of the street and the picture of the front door was totally different. It's more accurate to say that the school is in the building facing the main road. The school even goes by a different name to Washocook
This is it! This is definitely a gamechanger! We are from Canada and i brought my son with me for the Holidays. We took this class as our activity for the last two days in Japan. I love Japanese food but my son is quite picky eater. But when we started learning this home bento dishes, oh my he became very excited and i am very pleased with the chef. She was so kind and understanding and really creative. I was happy we took this class, i learned a lot. Now i can make Bento creatively at home and my son, surprisingly loved our finished products.
Really nice and kind instructor with detail to be followed, I was lucky enough to have a class in Kamakura area in traditional Japanese house, and there were many assistant to help almost 1:1, and Charabento may look difficult at first but if you follow the instruction you will find it very easy to do and fun... We really had a great time there like making friends. Highly recommend it...
This was a good experience in the heart of Tokyo. As it is near so many other sites, it is easily incorporated into a larger itinerary or as a stand alone activity.
We had a hard time to get to the class via the adress (Google Maps doesn't know it). Lucky the description from Noriko-san was good. We were 15 minutes late - so sorry. They waited for us. It was a mixed class with people from 4 different countries. The bento making itself was nice. We made everything ourselve step by step. The result was so cute! At the end we ate the bento together.
We had so much fun! Teachers were so nice, kind and patient. Instructions were always clear and teachers perfectly know how to explain and make it fun. We shared a really nice moment together and definitely recommend to anyone traveling in Japan to enjoy this cooking class.
must try when you visit Tokyo... Noriko was very friendly and very detailed when she explained the cooking class... she also gave tips about the ingredients and where to buy them. very recommended and i would love to do another cooking classes next time around.
