Experience Details
Matsuri (or omatsuri) refers to Japanese festivals. At traditional matsuri, street foods such as okonomiyaki (savory Japanese cabbage pancake) and takoyaki (balls of batter filled with octopus pieces) are super popular and portable snacks to enjoy. You can find numerous street food stalls touting these savory snacks in the vicinity of the festival, surrounded by a warm savory aroma that wafts by and draws you in closer. But you don’t have to wait for festival season to enjoy it; why not learn how to make your own matsuri food during this Matsuri Food Cooking Class in Ninomiya? In this class, you’ll learn how to make both okonomiyaki and takoyaki alongside the classic miso soup. Osaka-style okonomiyaki is a savory cabbage pancake, usually filled with seafood or meat. “Okonomiyaki” translates to “grilled as you like it,” which references okonomiyaki’s versatility. It is a super customizable dish, into which you can add shrimp, squid, octopus, oyster, or whatever your heart’s desire! The cooking instructor will select some fresh seasonal ingredients so you can taste the best of Japan’s offerings. Takoyaki is another dish hailing from Osaka. “Tako” means “octopus,” referring to the little chopped piece of octopus in each ball of batter. A special kitchen appliance is used to form these perfect balls of dough. At matsuri street food stalls, you can see as these balls are expertly turned and formed right before your eyes, but in this class, you can try it for yourself!
