Itinerary

    • Yanaka: Inheriting the looks of the Showa Era

      Before your cooking class, your instructor will show you around the town of Yanaka. Among all of Tokyo’s old-town areas, Yanaka especially shows its strong roots in the Showa era. The old wood-construction homes and cafes renovated from traditional houses give off a nostalgic atmosphere that takes you straight back in time!
    • Begin Making your Katsudon!

      After a presentation on traditional Japanese culinary culture and food, you’ll be eager to trying making Katsudon yourself! The traditional Japanese cooking class will begin immediately after, and with the help of your instructor, you’ll be able to make a mouth-watering dish with no prior experience! The class will teach you how to make the dashi broth, bread the meat, and bring it together with a silky egg. Your appetite will be raging for your creation!
    • Accommodating to dietary restraints

      This traditional Japanese cooking class is for everybody! To accommodate for dietary restraints, ingredients can flexibly be changed. For example, the tonkatsu can be changed from pork to chicken or tofu, and gluten free ingredients can be opted for too. Great attention is paid to not compromise the flavor! The instructor’s dedication to serve great food to absolutely everybody, may be the key to the cooking class’ popularity.
    • Time to eat!

      It’s finally time to eat your Japanese cooking! With your fellow participants, a delicious katsudon awaits you. The juicy katsudon that you learned how to make yourself will taste better than eating in a restaurant! Sit around a table with great food, and conversation will be sparked naturally. The best part about this cooking class is the communication and bonds born from the food!

      For dessert, you’ll be having the perfect Japanese-style parfait! The tall cup will be filled with traditional Japanese flavors like matcha green tea, red bean, and shiratama rice cakes. Do you think it’s too heavy to have right after Katsudon? That’s where you’re wrong, because there’s always space for dessert! The delicate sweetness will make this parfait go down smoothly before you even realize.
