Awesome Class with

My family and I visited Osaka and were looking for fun activities that we could do in addition to sightseeing. This class was the perfect experience for learning more about culture and history of sushi in Japan, and specifically in Osaka! We made takoyaki, matcha green tea, and tamagoyaki in addition to a sushi platter that we ate afterwards. I would highly recommend visiting and taking this class!
We messed up hee kitchen
, Nov 2019
As we lost our way in finding the meeting place, Yayo sensei settled us in with drinks and light snacks while we catch our breathe. Sensei played such a good host patiently walking us through each dish and guide us with our hands-on. Akane wore a very pretty kimono to welcome us at the door. She was so well behaved when we were having lessons. Despite our messing up her place, she made the whole cooking session so fun and helped us feel like great cook. We learned so much and had a wonderful time trying new yet familiar foods. We're looking forward to trying the recipes at home. We all highly recommend this experience if you're in Osaka even if you have never cook. Had just bought a rectangle pan online to try making dashimaki for my family.

I had a wonderful experience with Yayo. She is a very gracious & fun host who is patient and takes the time to explain things, including the history of why certain techniques are used. Yayo also provided information to take home around the items we prepared; I will get a chance to try these with my family. I highly recommend spending an evening with Yayo!
