The taste of childhood, onigiri are delicious, portable rice balls that are many people’s favorite food in Japan. And while they can be found in convenience stores, nothing beats the comforting taste of the onigiri made by my mom, ever since I was a child. The nostalgic flavor of a delicious onigiri is beloved by people across Japan. And the best part is, onigiri are so versatile and easy to make once you get the hang of it! if you make many different types of beautiful onigiri, you can have a party! In this Onigiri Bento Making Class, we will make a few different fun styles of onigiri and pack them in bento boxes. To accompany our tasty onigiri, we will also make fried eggs, sausages, and boiled vegetables, to give the bento box more color and variety! You will also learn about “umami,” a flavor that is naturally found in many Japanese foods, as you make the umami-packed miso soup with dashi (a type of traditional Japanese soup base). By joining this Onigiri Bento Making Class in Fukuoka, you will come to understand the modern Japanese lifestyle and way of thinking, which many people miss out on when they only visit tourist attractions in Japan.

Experience Location
Fukuoka’s Chuo-ku (Chuo ward) is located in the center of Fukuoka city alongside Hakata Bay. While the city is quite modern, nature-lovers can still find patches of green and seaside at Momochi Seaside Park. Other landmarks include Fukuoka Art Museum which features mainly Asian art exhibitions (though notably, it also houses The Madonna of Port Lligat by Salvador Dali), the Fukuoka Municipal Zoo and Botanical Garden, and the baseball stadium Fukuoka PayPay Dome. Shopaholics can also enjoy Kyushu’s biggest underground shopping mall, Tenjin Chikagai, which has a spacious and stylish vibe.
