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.
Really fun and great experience. Me and my husband ended up with a private class just the two of us and the teacher Aya who was great and spoke very good English. We ended up learning a lot and taking a lot away from the class, as well as getting to eat our own sushi at the end! (A lot of food!) have a late breakfast and be prepared to eat a lot of sushi at 4pm! Definitely recommended as a great part of Japanese culture as well as fun!
very unique experience. miss Aya was wonderful and spoke fluent English. our class had the perfect size of 4 people. cooked 8 dishes from appetizer to desserts. highly recommended if you wanna learn how to make Japanese cuisine at home. heck, days after our Japan trip, we immediately made tamago and gomamiso potato salad for breakfast!
