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. 

    Loved the experience. There were two instructors that were both friendly. One was very much more organized and prepared than the other. Lots of delicious and easy recipes. Would definitely do again. Note: The saki that is offered to adults at the end is not included, though they don't tell you that until you leave. Overall, well worth the experience.

  • 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.

    Ich lebe zurzeit in Kyoto und habe auch schon das ein oder andere Gericht Zuhause versucht zu kochen. Der Kurs war äußerst gut organisiert und ich habe ein paar Tipps mitgenommen wie was besser geht, Eierrollen zum Beispiel.

very nice cooking class with a perfect english speaking teacher. all meals were very very delicious, the best food we ate in japan yet. if you don't like any of the ingredients, you can choose an alternative. also got insider tips from our teacher, thanks for that! :) we highly recommend this class if you are staying in kyoto or the area around.

I had a great time with the organizers of this group course. They were attentive, very considerate and above all available to explain how to prepare the dishes. Excellent experience to do !!

Our instructor was very organized and cared a lot about the process. We had a nice time and look forward to trying out tempura and mirin at home.

This was a lovely activity to do-very interesting, informative, and scrummy to eat at the end! We thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was a great day with easy but very tasty food we were shown to cook.
