Experience Details
Making your own Japanese food can sometimes feel a little bit daunting, as recipes might be packed with unfamiliar flavors and techniques. Challenge yourself on your next trip to Nagoya, where you can learn how to make a range of Japanese dishes which are healthy, simple, and delicious during this Healthy Japanese Dishes Cooking Class in Nagoya, the powerful industrial capital of Japan! In this cooking class, you’ll learn how to make 4 different Japanese dishes including teriyaki chicken, chawanmushi (a type of savory egg custard), tempura (deep-fried vegetables, meat, and seafood), and kara-age (fried chicken). Your cooking instructor will welcome you into her home, a wooden Japanese house complete with tatami straw floor mats and traditional architecture. This Healthy Japanese Dishes Cooking Class in Nagoya is held in a renovated “kura,” a traditional Japanese storehouse, which is over 105 years old! Before heading into the kitchen, you can enjoy harvesting some seasonal produce from the on-site veggie garden as well as a stroll around the traditional Japanese garden. You can sip on a delicious beverage made from seasonal produce as a welcome drink, too! After a detailed demonstration and explanation of the menu, you’ll make your own healthy Japanese dishes for yourself with the help of your friendly instructor. Feel free to ask any questions about Japanese food and Nagoya cuisine as you work, making 4 tasty and healthy dishes from scratch. Your instructor will give you tips and tricks on how to prepare Japanese food in your home country with alternative cooking tools, outside of traditional Japanese grills, steamers, and more. You’ll sit down to eat your healthy Japanese feast, but also be able to take any leftovers away with you as a delicious souvenir snack! With the flexibility to tailor your experience, you can gain a range of new Japanese cooking skills during this class while making and eating a number of healthy Japanese dishes!

Experience Location

A small city to the north of Nagoya, Iwakura lies to the northwest of Aichi Prefecture and sits within the Nobi Plain, stretching across from Gifu Prefecture. A local neighborhood just on the outskirts of Nagoya City, Iwakura is sprinkled with temples, shrines, and park areas, with examples of traditional thatched-roof houses at Iwakura City Historic Park among some ancient ruins. Iwakura is bordered by the Yado River to the east and the Gojo River to the south, with both being wonderful cherry blossom viewing spots. The compact city is only a 20-minute train ride from Nagoya Station.
