Onigiri is a rice ball. Place rice in one hand, then press and form into a shpe such as triangle, circle, or sand bag shape, whatever you want :)
Tamagoyaki is a Japanese soul food. We say that every home has different tastes. Roll up by using a rectangular frying pan. It is difficult but will be so exciting!!

About Host



Hi, my name is Shiori. I love foreign countries and cultures. I have traveled many countires and have enjoyed the local foods in each country. Now I would love to teach you how to cook Japanese "BENTO" and share Japanese cultures with you. English, Chinese and Japanese languages are available.

The recipe comes from my sister who runs one of the most popular cafe in this area, and we are so proud of our food. We are even careful with health and will prepare additive-free seasonings for you.

The class will be held at her house, which takes only 20 minutes from Kyoto Station by JR Kosei Line and 2-3 minutes drive. There is good Onsen around here, so it will be great if you experience Onsen after our lunch. I am sure you will enjoy cooking "BENTO" and have a wonderful time here! We are looking forward to seeing you. Let's have fun together!
