A great way to start the day! The school is located in a lovely small building full of character behind a tea and coffee shop. The kitchen area has a really pleasant look and feel with a small garden outside. It probably only fits four students comfortably so your experience is likely to be personalised. The instruction was clear, the timing spot on and the end product delicious! Do it!
You will enjoy the class ..the chief and his wife are so friendly and the smile never leaves their face.
We really enjoyed the class. Ken and Junko explained things in the way all 3 generations could understand. Thank you for being so patient and helpful with our daughter, Kristina!!
Two of us took the Okonomiyaki class in Kyoto during the early afternoon time slot. Our host/teacher was Natsumi, and she was an excellent instructor. The space itself is inviting and tranquil, don’t be fooled by the drab exteriors of the buildings in the area around it. We would definitely recommend the experience, especially if you want to try an iconic dish in the comfort of a nice space, with the aid of a friendly guide.
A great cooking class, very nice people teaching us and we are so greatful for this experience! Thank you so much!
Excellent demonstration and interaction with the class. As the class size is small it felt like you were bring guided through in a supportive way. Whilst a confirmed carnivore there were great tips for vegetarian alternatives. It was the highlight of my trip to Japan!
Masa and Junko were very welcoming. We learnt a lot about the ingredients and basis of the japanese cuisine while making a truly delicious okonomiyaki!
The school is very nice , the people so kind and professional. The ambient confortable. Good
Our hosts and sensei were most knowledgeable and skillful, perfectly prepared for the group, and everything flowed according to plan. We were absolutely thrilled with the experience and are going back for another class in a few days. Masa-san and Junko-san are the most delightful people! We highly recommend this experience to those wishing to enjoy a cultural cooking class bar none!
I had a great time. It was really informative, fun and the food we made was excellent.
The teacher was so gently and nice We are 3 students but except me different food class so it was almost 1:1 class I of course recommend this class
Really enjoyed this class. It was just me and my sister there so we had plenty of opportunity to ask questions!
Interesting cooking class, Nice and friendly staff. Thank you !
our hosts were very nice, have a very equipped shop for cooking lessons, cooperated with the food limitations we set for them, explained the process wonderfully including substitutes we can find outside of Japan recommended !!
We were warmly welcomed by Masa and Junko and immediately set about going through the ingredients and how they are used generally in Japanese cooking and specifically to okonomiyaki. We made dashi from scratch to add to the okonomiyaki batter, and while we made these classic Japanese savoury pancakes on our own burners, Junko whipped up some lovely little salads and a deep miso made with the remaining dashi stock. Anyone who loves hands-on cooking and Japanese food will love this friendly and informative course. Wonderful sake with our shared meal, too! Highly recommended
Nice cooking class, we learned how to make okonomiyaki. The staff was nice, helpful and welcoming. We enjoués the session.
Had the best time. It ended up being a private class just for my friend and I. Teachers were super nice and fun. They gave simple, easy to follow instructions and a bit of overview of Were ingredients came from, traditions etc. Highly recommended!
I strongly recommend this to those who love Japanese food or are looking for a unique cultural experience. Making sushi was much more fun than I expected. The teacher was really nice, friendly and her explanation was clear. All dishes were tasty. I recommend this experience!
My friends and I love Japanese food and we were looking to learn how to cook it. We heard about Cookly and found this class at Chagohan which eventually became the highlight of our trip. We really enjoyed making sushis and Okonomiyaki! I would love to go there again to try out different classes and dishes. Thank you for the great experience.
