It was an amazing experience! I can only recommend!! Koneko is an awesome host, she teaches very well and is super friendly! One not only learns how to cook Okonomiyaki, but also gets a small insight into the japanese culture by talking to her!

This class was great. We had lots of laughs, learnt a lot and ate some beautiful food. We were warmly welcomed into Koneko's home and she was very knowledgable and shared lots of information. I can say the following day we had a day tour with lunch included which happened to be Okonomiyaki and Koneko's was much better in our opinion. Highly recommend this course, you won't be disappointed

We booked this cooking class last minute and hoped we would be allowed to bring our 6 month old baby with us to class. Miharu was a great host and teacher, the meals were delicious and easy and the participation required by us was minimal. Our baby was also able to come and Miharu organised her friend to come look after him which was so nice! We were also sent home with a goodie bag of ingredients to make the meals at home.

Koneko was a wonderful host. She gave easy to follow directions to her place and was responsive with messaging. Copies of the recipes, suggestions of things to do around the area and some goodies were provided. Everyone got a chance to help cook and we got great pictures of the experience afterwards. Cooking with her was like having a nice Japanese mom teach you how to cook.

This was the best experience ever! We had an absolute blast getting to know Koneko and spend the afternoon with her getting know how to cook and learn more about Japan! The food was amazing and bountiful, we left with full stomachs and Koneko sent us home with a cute little bag of snacks for us to enjoy back at our hotel! I 100% recommend this anyone who is visiting Osaka. This was a highlight for sure.

Our experience with Koneko and her friend Atsuko was fantastic! Amazing okonomyaki and really lovely conversation. We learned so much about technique and ingredients and they were very generous with their time answering all our questions. They even gave us very generous gifts to take home. We will remember the experience for ever and highly recommend it to anyone.

Koneko was a fantastic host. She made a concerted effort to adjust her course to cater for us as i am a vegetarian and she taught us three types of okonomiyaki (including hiroshima style okonomiyaki which she’d never taught before). She was caring and friendly, offering us tips about japan and cracking jokes warm heartedly. I could not recommend this experience enough.

A highlight of my trip to Japan!! Koneko is a very special person - kind, extroverted, funny, generous and of course great at making okonomyaki. I came to do the cooking but left feeling so lucky to spend an evening with Koneko who made us all feel so welcome and special in her home. She even sent us off with some of her favourite Japanese treats which was such an extra and beautiful gesture. I can't recommend this class enough and am sure my words are not doing it justice. Koneko, thank you for the very special evening you created for us, and I will wear my Japanese apron with my pride and happy memories of you! Thank you, Shari xx

Our cooking experience with Miharu (Koneko, as she likes to be called) was fun. She helped us make oyokonomiyaki, then she made Negiyaki and yakisoba while we enjoyed our cooking. Served with cherry blossom beer, as well. She sent us home with ingredients to make our own when we return. She is also forwarding the recipes to us via email. Great experience.

Koneko-san was a wonderful teacher! Even though this was her first time to teach online, she was great. She sent us instructions before the class by sending detailed photos of the ingredients, and including options in case we couldn't find them. She also sent us instructions how to make the Okonomiyaki a few minutes before the class so that we could prepare. During the class, the camera was tilted at first but with a little patience and communication, she was able to fix it and we were able to have a great class. She communicated clearly, instructions were great, and she was able to give us more tips and advice to improve our cutting, mixing, and cooking. Overall, it was a great experience and we can't wait to do another class with her. 本当にありがとうございます!

We love the way Miharu made her Okonomiyaki. She made it so simple and easy for us to understand. We recorded the whole process and can't wait to make it at home! She is very friendly and easy going. We chatted so much that day and had a very great time. She also gave us some ingredients for us to bring home. That is very kind of her. Because our class was at 7pm, she figured we will be hungry and got us some snacks too. She is very considerate. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to learn how to make Okonomiyaki!

My cooking class with Koneko was simply wonderful. It was a pleasure to spend the afternoon in her apartment learning how to make Okonomiyaki. The recipe was quite simple and I am sure I will be making it again at home. She even took me to the supermarket and bought all the ingredients I would need to make it myself. This was one of the best experiences I had in Japan, highly recommend it!

We enjoyed this very authentic and fun experience while learning to cook Okonomiyaki and other dishes. We felt very welcome in Koneko’s home and because her English is very good we had many laughs and learned interesting things about Japanese cooking, culture, Osaka etc. Also very great value for money. Would recommend!

Our experience at Koneko's okonomiyaki cooking class was awesome! She was willing to accept our last minute request and additionally prepared a fresh set of ingredients for us to bring home. The cooking class was very chill yet engaging. You can also let Koneko know of your dietary requirements. Her recipe was simple but tasted great!! (Even better than some shops outside) We highly recommend this class for beginners. Koneko also brought us from the station and led us back in the direction to head home. She even prepared beer to make us feel at home. Her stories were also engaging and we never felt out of place at her home. We highly recommend this class to visitors who are staying at Osaka. It doesn't take much time but it is an awesome experience!!
