Takoyaki are molten-hot balls of batter filled with bits of octopus. They’re a classic street food in Osaka, and a fun Japanese party food enjoyed in homes and at festivals across the nation. Join this “tako-pa” (takoyaki party) and learn how to make takoyaki in Fukuoka, a city that, much like Osaka, has a reputation for its street food.
This cooking class takes place at our guesthouse, located near Hakozaki Shrine, one of the major Shinto shrines in Fukuoka. It’s the perfect spot for lovers of traditional Japanese culture and art, as the guesthouse has a stunning Japanese garden in addition to being close by the beautiful shrine. So, if you love Japanese aesthetics, come and join us for this cooking class in Fukuoka!
Together, we’ll chop all the ingredients, make the takoyaki batter, and pour the batter into a special pan with circular molds. This pan is necessary to make perfectly rounded balls. Then, we’ll flip them until both sides are cooked and the interior is steaming hot! Our cooking instructor will be with you each step of the way, ensuring that your takoyaki will turn out delicious.
