Highlight of our trip!! We had a wonderful time cooking with Junko. It was an amazing experience - the food was delicious and it was great fun making it all from scratch! Junko was a fabulous host and whilst the food was incredible she made the experience, so friendly and so much fun I would highly recommend a cooking class with Junko!

Having attended cooking classes before I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of teaching and service that Junko provided. I can strongly recommend this this class and would overall give a rating of 5 out of 5. Below are my reasons for the rating. Teaching - 5 out of 5 Teaching a person is not an easy skill let alone teaching a group of people. Junko first gave a briefing of what we were going to cook and the ingredients that we would need for the dish, then she showed us the techniques of cooking 3 Japanese dishes step by step. Her focus on all of us ensured that we were not lost at any step of the process and touches of humour in the her teaching made the experience fun and enjoyable. Junko high proficiency with English also meant that there was no misunderstandings throughout the teaching process. She also gave adequate advice which proved to be valuable though out our trip with understanding the culture, where to visit, language nuances and etiquette. Taste - 4 out 5 (you get what you put in) After booking the class, I was shortly contacted by Junko and she asked if I would like to make gyozas with meat or vegetables which if you are a vegetarian I think you could definitely find interesting as an option. Due to the precise measurement of the ingredients, it's hard to come up with a different flavour than what is expected with the food at the end tasting delicious and was very flavourful. Cleanliness - 5 out of 5 Cooking in a Japanese home was an incredible experience for me being a foreigner and it was interesting to see what a traditional Japanese home looks like. The house was very tidy and the environment that we cooked in was very hygienic. Hospitality - 5 out of 5 The hospitality Junko presented was a very pleasant experience. She met us at the station where we were made to feel very welcome in her home. Upon meeting her, we got to know a bit about each other which made the experience more memorable. During the whole process we took photographs to capture and remember the experience which for me personally will be one that I will not forget.

It was a truly amazing experience! Junko was a very warm host who was extremely patient, putting up with our rusty gyoza making skills. Thank you for letting us into your home and preparing a grand feast for us. Fatema and I really enjoyed it and could not have asked for a better birthday gift! :)

We had an absolute blast making gyozas with Junko!! She made us feel right at home, and even though I’m not the best cook, she was encouraging and helpful the entire time. We spent our time laughing, sharing stories, and learning about Japanese culture. When we come back to Japan, we are most definitely going to come back to see Junko!

We really enjoyed Junko's cooking class. Junko welcomed us with open arms. We learned not only how to cook Japanese dumplings but also Japanese culture from her. The most impressive thing was visiting a real Japanese home and communicating with a local. It was a memorable experience in my life! I definitely recommend you to take Jonko's class :)
