Nao took me on a delightful tour of Nishi Market and Gion. Not only did she explain how history has shaped and changed the place, but she also pointed out dishes that I would have unknowingly passed by, which were truly delicious. Moreover, she has introduced me to Japanese customs and food culture. It was great fun as she also catered to my needs and helped me find items that I would have struggled to find on my own 😊

Bento Making Class in Kyoto
Cooking Classes
This cooking class experience was absolutely adorable, fun, and educational. We arrived to the destination 15 min late because it was difficult to tell where the exact location was and where to park. I was so nervous because our group of 4 drove together from Kyoto through winding roads to find the class. Even though we were late the hosts were very kind and didn’t mind at all. They offered us tea and had us put on our aprons and wash our hands. Kimichan was our cooking instructor. She did a great job communicating, mostly using google translate to explain the steps as we were cooking. Making the set was fun and it was pretty easy. They prepared all the ingredients pre-measured and our host checked that we did the steps correctly. She also helped us take group photos and individual photos of us making noodles. Once we finished making the noodles, our teacher collected them all and boiled them together. In the end we had a good lunch that we made ourselves in a relaxing and memorable setting.

What FUN to participate, witness, and make restaurant quality ramen! Our host and owner of restaurant Musoshin was entertaining and educational about ramen, that my family enjoyed the experience very much. To hold the attention of kids you have to be! This was my first food experience with byFood, and will be trying more in the future because of Shin!

Ramen Noodle Making Experience in Kyoto
Cooking Classes

Few places in the world, if any, can claim gastronomic heritage on par with Kyoto. The historic capital of Japan is the spiritual home of washoku — the traditional Japanese cuisine which is listed as a treasure of world cultural heritage. It was also on these streets, trodden by merchants and samurai, that kaiseki dining and its cousin, the meditative Japanese tea ceremony, flourished.

This world of edible wonders has enough to discover for three lifetimes, so if you’re planning on getting involved, you might struggle to work out where to start. These Kyoto food experiences with byFood cut out all of the confusion, and take you right to the heart of the local culinary culture with the help of an expert local guide.

Whether you want to go drinking in the chic standing bars of Pontocho Alley, learn to brew tea like a true master, get the lowdown on all the street food in Nishiki Market, or add some traditional Japanese dishes to your cooking repertoire, you’ll find a food experience in Kyoto to suit your needs and budget. Itadakimasu!
