Japanese Fake Food: Food Sample Making Workshop in Tokyo
Cooking Classes
This cooking class experience was absolutely adorable, fun, and educational. We arrived to the destination 15 min late because it was difficult to tell where the exact location was and where to park. I was so nervous because our group of 4 drove together from Kyoto through winding roads to find the class. Even though we were late the hosts were very kind and didn’t mind at all. They offered us tea and had us put on our aprons and wash our hands. Kimichan was our cooking instructor. She did a great job communicating, mostly using google translate to explain the steps as we were cooking. Making the set was fun and it was pretty easy. They prepared all the ingredients pre-measured and our host checked that we did the steps correctly. She also helped us take group photos and individual photos of us making noodles. Once we finished making the noodles, our teacher collected them all and boiled them together. In the end we had a good lunch that we made ourselves in a relaxing and memorable setting.

Tomokita San is the best host and in her Japanese cooking class you get to learn a lot about japanese culture, basic ingredients in japanese cuisine, japan lifestyle and customes. Its impressive how delicious all the dishes are. You get to experience how to cook the basic dishes in a real japanese home, like miso soup, rice, seasonal vegetables and the main dish with all the typical seasonings of the japanese cuisine. You can customize the class for normal japanese food or make it vegetarian or vegan, depending on your diet. It feels like visiting the house of a friend, because she opens her house to you, welcoming you with tea and some appetizers. She decorates the table with elements of the japanese culture depending on the season or the month. The best part is that Tomokita San is always chatting with you cheerfully about japanese culture, her life, and explaining patiently how to cook and, of course, to get to enjoy the meals on her table while drinking homemade plum wine is one of the best moments of this experience. I highly recommend you to book this class if you want to learn how to cook japanese food, but also if you want to feel how is to visit a friend who lives in a real modern Japanese home.
