    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!

    簡單就能學到道地的料理~ 祐子老師的英文很好,說明也很清楚~非常推薦唷! 可以的話不要吃午餐直接去上課~ 不然有可能會吃不完XD
  • Wai*** 16 Mar 2017
    每個步驟都要自己做,這樣都很清楚,回家真的可以自己再煮,很認真。

    经常去国外参加这样的活动,了解当地文化,学做当地菜肴,非常有意思,一般这样的活动都看不到国人的身影,欧美人比较多,地方稍微有些偏,跟着地图走了好久,总的还是不错的
  • JIACHEN* 22 Feb 2017
    地点虽然不是很好找但交通方便,在一栋八十多年的老房子里。教课的老师很赞,英语很好,没有多数日本人的那种口音。日本人烧菜可能真的要比较精致,感觉即使是在做简单的料理也是很精致的感觉。作为体验文化的一种方式,这样的活动真心不错!
  • Charris* 12 Feb 2017
    因為人數剛好七個人,我被分配到的食材份量有點少,做出來的菜色看起來比較不豐富,其中一道是日式煎餃,所以對我而言沒太多的新奇。提醒要去的人,如果要配清酒,別忘了要付¥500哦!

    很有趣的料理班,不過地點有點難找。 料理老師好親切,參加者全部係外國情侶,幾特別的體驗。
