Great experience! The instructor spoke English well, fostered a relaxed class environment, provided easy-to-follow instructions, and even taught us common Japanese phrases such as itadakimasu and gochisousama. The price gets cheaper when you book with another person or two, so come with your friends as it is absolutely money and time well-spent anyway. Highly recommended! I will take the sushi class when I go back to Tokyo!
I really love this experiential tour especially for my mother who loves going to market places, see things being sold and learning about food.
First, we were late for 10 minutes but they waited for us. Thus, make sure to arrive early coz google maps and Tokyo train stations are really complicated for first timers.
Naomi is very knowledgeable about Tsukiji market. She will bring you to her favorite stores, tell you where to find ingredients or food that are available only in Tsukiji, and show you the popular places and food to eat. Ask her and she readily answers. We left with lots of info that I could bring it forward to friends!
After Tsukiji market, Naomi took us to a short bus ride to ABC cooking studio. We were like group of friends already ready for some home cooking.
The cooking at ABC was very organized, very smooth and pleasant...the studio cafe is a very nice place!
The teacher was extra nice and patient with us as Naomi and the other girl staff were also assisting. We learned how to make tamago, miso soup, sushi balls and sushi rolls. It was fun and easy to do with their help. Copy of the recipes werr given.
We practically prepared our lunch 😊😊.
Thanks to all the staff of ABC. For me and my mom, it was the highlight of our trip in Tokyo. 👍👍
This was so much fun and such a great learning experience! The cooking class leaders were so kind and even though I could not speak much Japanese, they were very accommodating and spoke enough English for us to understand how to make each dish. The view of the sumida River was amazing, and we even got to use the glass cups we used for the kiriko class for some green tea with our meal. Both classes were so fun, and I am so appreciative of the attentiveness of the staff at both the edo kiriko studio and the cooking class. Would definitely recommend going!
The cooking course was very engaging and the instructor was really friendly. She provided adequate guidance with elaborated instructions and insights on Japanese food culture & ingredients used. Very satisfying to go through the cooking process and slowly savour the kaiseki meal with our course mates. We certainly had a lovely time!
Location is not too hard to find. Just follow Google map. Enjoyed the experience and learn a lot of tips from miki-san.
I was by myself.. so it’s like a private class for me :) food is very delicious. Chef also shared the bottle/Brand’s of condiment used and we can buy them easily from mini stop near the cooking sun studio even. With reasonably size plastic bottle which is easy to carry home.
Very nice ladies and they all speak fluent English and they were very patient with kids. Kids had so much fun making the sushi and eating them! But the place is a not easy to find and the google map was not pointing to the correct address. We got off taxi at the wrong place but luckily someone helped us to find the place. Worth a try.
