Masa the teacher was very informative and I was lucky that I was the only person in the class so received extra special attention I was able to pick up lots of tricks and tips that I can use when I cook Japanese food I work as a chef so have added new skills to my repitoire Truly great experience

Had a wonderful session with Massa as he walked me through both Tempura and sashimi. Lesson and recipe notes were great and the end result was sensational. Would highly recommend Chagohan cooking school
Me and my 17 year old son came for the tempura class. This was the first time my son really cooked, and Masa was very patient. He taught us valuable and easy techniques that we can replicate at home. We enjoyed the yummy food we cooked afterwards. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience! I plan to come back to Japan and attend another class. I highly recommend this class!
A fun and enriching experience for those looking to do something fresh and exciting on their trip to Japan. Ingredients are fresh and varied, and Masa-san (the teacher) and his wife are warm and hospitable from start to finish. You learn a lot during the lesson, and at the end of it get to enjoy an amazing meal prepared by your own two hands. I highly recommend this to everyone.
This afternoon private session was a wonderful way to spend some quality time with my mom who was visiting. It was well paced, easily understood, yet still taught the two of us seasoned home cooks many new skills! We really enjoyed cooking and eating!
We ENJOYED and learned so much as to make “delicious” tempura. The instructor Masa-san is outstanding and his wife, Junko-san is so gracious, we felt most welcomed. We highly recommend this class! 😊
Chagohan was recommended to us by our hotel concierge. What an excellent recommendation! We did the tempura class. We were the only people in our session, so it ended up being a private lesson. The owners, Masa and Junko, are extremely gracious. Masa is very knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. He taught us how to: make dashi broth, slice tuna and salmon sashimi, prepare vegetables and shrimp for tempura, make tempura batter, and cook the tempura! Now we can do it at home! This was a lot of fun, and we would definitely come back for another class on a future trip to Tokyo.
I had the most amazing lesson with Hirano-san. I was very lucky to be the only person there that Sunday. Hirano-san is a very knowledgable, friendly and patient chef and teacher (or sensei). I got to understand not only the ingredients, but also how to use the utensils, including the sashimi knife. I'm grateful for all I have learned, and got a little closer to understanding the wonders of umami in Japanese cooking. I know I will be coming back to learn something different when in Tokyo in 2019.
We had a lovely time and enjoyed the class so much!
The school is very nice , the people so kind and professional. The ambient confortable. Good
It was amazing learning experience. I am very thankful that I took my classes with cookly. They are very nice, friendly and professional chef. We were lucky because we work with them one on one and we had a good time while learning with them. I have learned a lot from them and with their facilities. Now I like making my tempura at home and soon will have tempura party with friends. I am proud that I learned from your classes Thank you so much.
Fun and learning for all age groups. Highly recommend also that you visit Kappabashi before or after as very close by and convenient
Everyone in our group had a wonderful time and Masa and Junko were lovely. We all learned so much and will be very happy to show off to our friends with all of these new skills and knowledge about Japanese food.
Really enjoyed this class .. my son and I had a private class.. which was great .. lots delicious food .. in fact way too much food.
Really enjoyed this class. I'm pretty new to even the basics of Japanese cooking. Masa the instructor was both very supportive and shared his knowledge in a very clear fashion. The meal chosen was well designed to facilitate using a variety of different skills (cutting, frying, presentation etc.) We ate the meal at a fairly leisurely pace so I never felt like I was being rushed. really good sake too. Highly recommended.
The host is very friendly. It is not only about cooking but also about learning Japanese culture food knowledge. It is all in English. If you don't know japanese, it is definitely fine to join. At the end of tempura class, we had a glass of sake. The host is also a sake lover and master. End up we spend one more hour having our masterpiece and talk about Japanese wine. It is definitely value to journey!
Highly recommended for young, less young, anyone who likes Japanese food and cooking...
Course is pretty good. Nice experience
I had never made miso from scratch before and they took us through all the steps and it ended up being so easy. And then they took us through all the steps for tempura, I had made tempura before but never quite got it right and got all the extra little tips I needed to really take it to the next level. The primary instructor Hiroko is great with very good English. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in Japanese cooking.
