Why You Must Join a Cooking Lesson in Tokyo


In 2013, Washoku, traditional Japanese food, made the UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritages, and since then the demand for Japanese food has been increasing overseas. In fact, half of the sixteen newly Michelin-starred restaurants in New York City for 2019 were Japanese cuisine! With a worldwide appreciation of iconic Japanese dishes such as sushi, ramen, and tofu, it’s no wonder that Tokyo has become such a popular foodie destination. So, why not experience a cooking class in Tokyo and learn how to make healthy and delicious Japanese dishes for yourself? Offering a diverse array of cooking courses to choose from, Tokyo by Food has all of your culinary interests covered. Join a sushi making class in Tokyo and learn how to make nigiri sushi or cute sushi rolls by hand, or take a Japanese home-cooking class and learn classic Japanese recipes. For vegetarians and vegans visiting Tokyo, meatless and dairy-free Japanese cooking classes, like a vegan ramen class, are also available. Rather than a souvenir, the experience and knowledge gained during a cooking class is the most priceless thing you can take home from your trip to Japan. You will always have wonderful memories from the class, and you’ll forever have the recipe and skills to cook delicious Japanese food in your own kitchen.

Recent Reviews from Our Guests

"We felt like a special guest when we arrive to the place. They were outstanding hosts. We received all the detailed information about the preparation. Of course, the food was so delicious! We usually take cooking classes when we travel and this one was one of the best!"

"The healthy rice sushi experience was one to not just remember but to carry in our hearts as we didn’t just experience 2 welcoming chefs but also 2 friendly, warm and open Japanese women who showed us their culture in their lovely home. They have the professional experience to teach you many dimensions of the sushi making (from history, to all the varieties to the preparing and some tips how to eat it for maximum taste with every bite). They master English in a way that I didn’t hear in any other place during our 2 week stay (their foreign partners and living abroad are the source for this I assume)."

"Masa and Junko are amazing couple and amazing team. We really had so much fun while making our own ramen and gyoza. With all natural ingredients, the food was so delicious. This class was one of the highlights of our Tokyo trip. I totally recommend it."

"The instructor was creative, patient, kind, accommodating and vey hospitable! As I am vegan and would prefer gluten free, she decided to make what I can eat 100% buckwheat soba noodles. Though it was challenging, she made it with me. It was absolutely delicious and a great experience!"
