Ever wondered how Japanese chefs manage to pack so many interesting flavors into the tiny treats in a bento box? Come along to a traditional cooking class to learn the tricks of the trade from expert local chefs. The sessions provide a fun and interactive environment for learning about the preparation of sushi, sesame salads and many other specialities. Your teachers will also offer you an insight into the historical background of 'Bento', and you'll be able to dress in sumae (the traditional dress of a working buddhist monk) to complete your cultural experience. After you've spent the morning perfecting your cooking skills, you'll feast upon your mini creations as you get to know the fellow chefs on your course. It's a fun filled morning of cultural discovery - foodies, don't miss out!
