The whole experience was a cultural highlight! The cooking class takes place in a traditional Japanese house, which contributes to the authentic atmosphere. The class was very hands-on, the teachers were great and we enjoyed a very delicious meal! I can highly recommend this class! Will definitely do it again when I'm back and also try it out in other places I will travel to.

We had lots of fun. Easy recipes that we can re-create at home. Everything was delicious. Suitable for all ages. Would highly recommend.
Definitely the highlight of our vacation! It was a great way to immerse ourselves with Japanese dining culture. My whole family enjoyed the experience. We learned cooking authentic Japanese foods that were usually served in restaurants. It was a hands on experience in a very traditional setting. The class was conducted in English and it was definitely a plus! We got to share some laughs, had some sake tasting and authentic Japanese green tea. And plus, we all got to wear their traditional Samue.
Teacher was very kind, and she provided a lot of great information not just about the food, but about the region itself. Food was great.
We had such a good time at this class learning lots of new techniques and discovering new flavours.
Really enjoyed learning about the flavours of Japan. Can’t wait to make my own twist of dishes in Australia
Good balance of cooking methods and allowed us time to interact with staff and students. Thanks for doing the dishes!
Was a great class and learnt heaps. Would have liked a beer or wine to have with our meal.
Class of 4 of us had a great experience cooking And enjoying our results.
We simply enjoyed the class! Clear directions and wonderful instructors. Bonus, food wonderful and we’ll be able to make at home. Highly recommend.
Lovely teachers, excellent food, lovely experience
A wonderful afternoon experiencing authentic Japanese home style cooking. Explanations about the ingredients were good. Also a very nice atmosphere and great people.
Interesting and useful experience
The cuisine is simple but delicious. Definitely can do it again at home! Nice one
We were a group of 9 people and 3 hosts. They were very friendly and warm and the cooking was a lot of fun. All the many questions we had about ingredients etc. were patiently answered. Everything was well organised, the food was lovely and even my food allergies were accomodated for. I only wish there had been more interaction among the participants, which was not difficult because of the way we were placed. Besides that: Awesome!
We loved our class and the helpful and kind instructors!
Set in a traditional Japanese kitchen we learned how to cook a variety of delicious Japanese dishes that we will definitely be cooking again for friends and family when we get home. Great experience, highly recommended!
We made Dashi, Tomato salad, plum rice, chicken gyosas, tofu salad, chicken karage, and tea jelly! Everything was delicious and fairly easy to make. The teachers were friendly and knowledgeable, and answered our many questions :) I would definitely recommend this class to anyone visiting Kyoto.
