Experience Details

Transform your favorite cartoon characters into cute edible creations in this character bento cooking class. A kawaii Japanese tradition, character bento (known as kyaraben for short) is a fun way to venture into Japanese cooking while creatively decorating a packed box lunch inspired by pop culture. Let your host know what characters you’d like to make or ask her for recommendations, and get ready to cook and enjoy a healthy, cute, and delicious lunch. This class can accommodate several dietary restrictions, so you can ask your host upon booking if you’d like to make it gluten-free, pescatarian, vegan, vegetarian, or halal-friendly (please note that ingredients are not halal-certified, but the host can avoid using pork and alcohol in the recipes, and take measures to prevent cross-contamination.) Experience flow: -Meet your host at the cooking school -Your host will introduce the recipes and explain the procedure -Watch your hosts demonstration and get cooking -Enjoy your delicious creations for lunch with water, tea, and miso soup Your host, Kaori, is a licensed cook with extensive experience teaching character bento classes for children and adults, even working on character-bento-related projects for magazines and TV. She uses her experience and knowledge to craft lessons that are both fun and creative for the whole family to enjoy. This cooking class is only a few minutes from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. One of the city’s most popular green areas, this vast garden offers beautiful sights throughout the seasons right at the heart of central Tokyo, for which it is worth visiting any time of the year.
