Cooking Sun Kyoto: Our most recommended tours and activities

Kyoto: Afternoon Japanese Izakaya Cooking Class

1. Kyoto: Afternoon Japanese Izakaya Cooking Class

Join an afternoon Izakaya cooking class to enjoy a great way to immerse yourself in Japanese dining culture as well as learn authentic Japanese foods that are eaten at home and in local restaurants. The cooking course consists of two parts. First, you will cook 2 or 3 dishes together with your chef and enjoy them. Then you will return to the kitchen and learn 2 or 3 more dishes before eating once more. As in many Izakaya (over the counter) restaurants, be ready to talk with your chef while cooking and eating at the same time. 

Kyoto: Morning Japanese Bento Cooking Class

2. Kyoto: Morning Japanese Bento Cooking Class

Experience an authentic Japanese food tradition and prepare your own bento box at a morning bento cooking class in Kyoto. Learn about typical Japanese dishes, such as sushi, tempura and miso soup, and hear about the cultural background of the well-known Japanese "bento" takeaway meal. Traced back to the late Kamakura Period (1185 to 1333), the bento box has now become a staple of Japanese cuisine. Arrive for your 2.5 to 3-hour class and collect your ingredients, apron and utensils. Then, watch and follow your chef as they demonstrate the art of bento and explain the tricks to making beautiful Japanese dishes often found in a bento box. Once you have finished cooking your dishes, enjoy the fruits of your labor and tuck into your bento lunch.

Since it is not high season (December 12th), we were only two participants. That was really perfect! It was a wonderful experience and a lot of fun. I highly recommend this course. You prepare miso soup and a bento box with a spinach salad, salmon or chicken teriyaki, sushi (filled with Japanese omelette, cucumber, mushrooms and imitation shrimp) and tempura (shrimp and vegetables). It was really delicious!

I’m an avid cook but I still enjoy the knowledge that the instructor shared about Japanese cooking. I’m so glad that my son joined the cooking class with me so that he can learn some basics of Japanese cooking.

Such an excellent cooking class! We had to best time - the food was delicious! The class was very relaxed, yet very informative. A must activity whilst in Kyoto!!

Was a nice experience and the instructor was super sweet and helpful with us. We did in total 6 dishes. I loved all of them.

Highly recommend. Friendly staffs, easy to communicate.
