    Great food and teacher. Learned lots of techniques. Loved the small intimate class size.

    Excellent experience. The course is worth for its price. The venue was in a very authentic traditional Japanese house and clean and tidy. Tutors are friendly and the atmosphere encourages you to exchange thoughts with people from different countries. Food of course is tasty and I have practiced it when back my home country. I would highly recommend my friends and family to join.

    The chef is patient as we have 2 kids and she gave some toys for my son to let him play. The instruction and recipe is clear and food is delicious. Recommend for those who wants to have a glimse of japanese cooking.

    This tour is highly recommended to whom is very interested to the Japanese culture, especially their cuisine. The teachers are very nice and friendly. We spent a great afternoon there. However, I think it will be better if everyone has their own cooking utensils, then we can make all the dishes by ourselves and don't need to make the dishes with someone else.

    Great session learning different Japanese dishes. It was really hands on, which meant that we had to do everything from preparing the ingredients to cooking them. We were first given yukatas to wear, before getting an overview of Japanese cuisine. After that it was straight into the cooking as the instructors guided us from one dish to the next. We prepared a total of 4 dishes in pairs, while rice and soup were prepared in a group setting. The instructors were also really friendly, and constantly engaged with us throughout the session, making us feel at home. The best part of the activity was of course eating our own creations! Quantity of food was sufficient too!

    這次因為住在大阪,只能參加下午班。想不到只有我們一行三人上堂,成了私人飯局。導師十分有善,安排很仔細,食物好好味。絕對值得推介。上堂地點不易找,記得用google map 導航。

    那天剛好是3個人的小班(我跟一個朋友還有一個來自美國的遊客)一開始就大家自我介紹然後就開始料理班 我們一邊學做料理一邊聊天,氣氛很好。老師有介紹有什麼好玩的、什麼特色的料理景點活動。我們也分享一下在外地的所見所聞。 P.S. 去的時候是用google map找的路,從地鐵走了大概半個小時,還要在小巷裡拐來拐去,之後問老師有沒有什麼捷徑到地鐵站,結果就只拐了幾次彎,到了大馬路,用了10分鐘都不到就到了。所以建議出發前最好發個電郵問一下怎麼走。

    這次料理體驗絕對是旅行中其中一次難忘的經歷. 跟日藉老師學習, 理解如何烹調日式料理, 過程中亦能與其他課友互相交流,分享!值得推薦大家試試這樣另類旅遊樂趣.
