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!
