Know More about this tour
At the famous Nishiki Food Market, your guide will introduce you to the many ingredients that may be used in your Japanese cooking class later in the day. Learn about local produce and spices, and enjoy being part of Kyotos bustling food scene.
Next, travel through the back streets and shop-lined lanes of Kyoto to a former sake brewery, now a museum, where you can enjoy a sake tasting as you learn how this iconic Japanese beverage is produced (if the museum is closed on the day you visit, you will receive an admission ticket to use at a later date). Then make your way to a machiya, a traditional wooden townhouse typical of Kyoto, for your cooking class.
Your cooking class lasts approximately 1.5 hours; when its over, youll know how to prepare a classic Japanese dinner to wow your friends back home. Learn how to roll your own sushi, make miso soup, put together a cooked salad and pick out seasonal fruit for dessert.
After sitting down to enjoy your meal, you have the rest of the evening free to explore Kyoto on your own. If you want to return to your hotel after the class, your guide can help you find transportation.
