This class was very educational, personal, and fun. We went to the market with the chef and learned about Japanese food (culturally and ways to prepare dishes). She asked us our preferences for tastes in food and based our cooking experience upon what looked good and in season at the market. We went to her house (which felt very welcoming and hospitable). We learned how to cook lots of different Japanese dishes. We really enjoyed the chef's company. ATTENTION: Be sure you bring money for the bus during the transfer from the market to the chef's home.

My best cooking class, one of my best experience in Japan!!
Aki is a passioned cook with a lot of heart, she explains very well in an excellent English. Her place is amazing: traditional Japanese house with a beautiful garden in the very heart of Kyoto. The open kitchen on the living-room was easy to use and very convenient for all of us.
We bought seasonal vegetables and fishes at the market and wee cooked dishes far from all the cliché we have on Japanese food, so interesting...
We could met really nice people and share this moment together, thanks again for this unforgettable moment!!
