Experience Details
If you’re curious about the local supermarkets of Kyoto but are intimidated by the endless rows of unknown ingredients, this Kyoto market tour and cooking class is the perfect introduction to Japanese supermarkets and home cooking! You’ll get a tour of the famous Nishiki Market and a local supermarket in the center of Kyoto and learn about Japanese ingredients, then go to the cooking studio with your new loot to whip up something delicious in the kitchen. You’ll have a choice of making either gyudon (beef donburi) or oyakodon (“parent-and-child” donburi). A donburi is a bowl of cooked rice which is topped by another Japanese food. In addition to gyudon and oyakodon, there are also varieties such as katsudon (topped with tonkatsu, pork cutlet), tendon (topped with tempura), and many others! In the Kyoto Market & Supermarket Tour with Donburi Cooking Class, the gyudon will be made with wagyu (Japanese beef). Or, if you choose to make oyakodon, it will be made with free range chicken and eggs. You can also choose to make it vegan, vegetarian, or halal. Menu: Your choice of either (1) gyudon (Japanese beef bowl made with wagyu beef) OR (2) oyakodon (chicken and egg rice bowl made with free-range chicken) If you are vegan, vegetarian or halal, we will use tofu instead of meat.
Inclusions

Experience Location

The bustling Downtown area of Kyoto is the heart of the city, loaded with hotels, artisanal shopfronts, specialty restaurants, and hidden bars. With pleasant surprises around every corner and alleyway, before the Kamo-gawa River to the east lies the beautiful old town architecture of Pontocho, nestled in alongside the local izakaya and lively club scene. The enormous Teramachi and Shinkyogoku shopping arcades run north to south, intersected by the famous Nishiki Markets (“Kyoto’s Kitchen”), while delicious department store basements bubble below with tasty regional samples.
