    Wonderful experience. Our instructor Tomoko was a lovely person and taught us to cook many everyday Japanese dishes in a simple and easy to follow way. I was surprised how good the dishes that I made tasted! definitely worth doing if you are in Kyoto.

    Love how easy going and friendly the teacher was. Do know that this place was a bit hard to find.
  • Min Pei 7 Jan 2018
    The entire lesson was very enjoyable. The teachers were well-prepared, fluent in english and also chinese, patient and teaches well. With a small class size, learning is made more interactive with the teachers and other students. Lesson was conducted very smoothly and the menu offered really delicious dishes. It was a great opportunity to improve one's cooking skills and to understand more about the food culture in Japan.
