It's a fun filled afternoon of cultural and culinary exploration - foodies, this one's for you!
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!
