Experience what the Japanese call “tako-pa” or “takoyaki party” during this 1-hour Kyoto Takoyaki Cooking Class! You’ll learn to make these delicious, molten-hot balls of batter, stuffed with pieces of octopus, using a special takoyaki griddle to make the round-shaped takoyaki. You can even wear traditional Japanese clothes like kimono, samue, or yukata while you enjoy your tako-pa! Take lots of photos in your new outfits, while you enjoy your time eating and chatting.
Takoyaki is a special Japanese dish that brings people together in the dining room, with the common goal of making delicious takoyaki! These octopus-filled balls of batter are slathered in sauce, Japanese mayo, katsuobushi fish flakes, and aonori (seaweed powder). They’re a super tasty party food that’s easy to share and making them is also a fun, collaborative experience!
