We signed up for the Shokado Bento lesson. The kitchen was in a traditional Japanese house. The instructors taught us basic techniques first. The instructor was so helpful and encouraging since we had varying levels of cooking skills. Unfamiliar ingredients and cooking techniques were thoroughly explained. It was an incredibly enjoyable afternoon and I would highly recommend the experience!!

Highly recommend the Shokado Bento class, Masa and Ken were just phenomenal! They shared knowledge of the history to the Japanese classics in this class on miso, matcha green tea, tempura, and rice cooking. This is a great class for anyone who wants a well-rounded approach to the Japanese kitchen classics. Its location is also a bonus just blocks from Kappabashi Street in Asakusa. Make sure you allow yourself hours before or after the class to enjoy the shopping for anything and everything Japanese for your kitchen.
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time in this class! Masa and his wife were both extremely helpful and the food was incredibly delicious. We only had 3 students enrolled for our session, so the experience mimicked a traditional Japanese family dinner more so than a class. We even got to stick around for some conversation over sake/japanese whisky after it was all done. Highly recommend the experience! Can't say enough great things!
