    Okonomiyaki

    Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savory pancake, made with flour, eggs, shredded cabbage, meat and toppings as you like. This variability is reflected in the dish's name: "okonomi" literally means "to one's liking". You can eat it everywhere in Japan, but especially Okonomiyaki made Hiroshima style and Osaka style are the most famous.

Cooking Class Information

We make sushi and Okonomiyaki from scratch.

Oshizushi is a type of sushi made by pressing sushi rice with various toppings into a mold. We make it with grounded chicken teriyaki taste called Soboro and shredded omelet. Temarizushi is a cute sushi ball with smoked salmon & avocado, slice of cucumbers & tuna mayonnaise.
Okonomiyaki is well known local food in Osaka, it's fun to cook with an electric griddle on the table.
You also can eat delicious Tofu which is the specialty of Kyoto.

Our private kitchen is not big but we welcome you with much hospitality.

All cooking classes by Yukari



I'm Yukari living in Kyoto, working as a food writer for over 10 years. Through my work, I truly realized good aspects of Japanese cuisine such as abundant fresh seasonal ingredients, beautiful presentation, well-balanced menus, and a wide variety of regional food behind its culture for more than a thousand years. Not only writing a cover story about food but also love cooking so I started offering a cooking class for foreigners an understanding of Japanese food lot more than Sushi and Ramen. I hope participants to enjoy Japanese home-style cooking you will never have in restaurants.

After lunch, you can go to sightseeing Shisendo, Manshuin, Ginkakuji, Nanzenji near my flat. I can advise you about nice spots for sightseeing or restaurants in Kyoto.

Both my husband and I really enjoyed meeting Yukari and learning how to make 2 kinds of sushi, tofu salad and Okinomiyaki. It all tasted delicious! Yukari was polite and welcoming having us in her kitchen! We even had the recipes sent to us via PDF which is handy for us to use as a reference to cook at home. Would recommend this cooking class for anyone who wants go learn some classic Japanese dishes.

Cooking with Yukari was absolutely one of my favorite activities in Japan. Yukari walked me through the process of making several different Japanese style recipes, and I ate all of it! The homemade Okonomiyaki was the best I’ve ever had! Yukari was very social and ever gave me some great recommendations for the surrounding area after the class. Well worth the money and a great experience!

We had a wonderful experience with Yukari making sushi and okonomiyaki. We were able to do many parts of the cooking ourselves but Yukari also did some things for us which saved time - we would have taken all night doing it all ourselves. Yukari was so welcoming and gave great instructions (in impeccable English). It was really something special to be welcomed into her home.
