  • 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

In Osaka, the town of merchants,it is said that people tend to eat inspare moments from their work so that they earn more.There is a theory that dishes developed because of shortage of rice after the Civil war.

There are two styles of making Japanese pancake such as Osaka style and Hiroshima style.
In Osaka style, we mix the ingredients such as eggs, flour and other different toppings and fry the mixture on the pan. In Hiroshima style, ingredients are not mixed but layered. Each layer is put on top of each.Noodles are also put on in Hiroshima style. There is similar food in Tokyo called Monjyayaki.The taste of Monjayaki is similar to that of okonomiyaki. You can imagine that Monjayaki is a watery version of okonomiyaki.It’s as delicious as okonomiyaki despite the appearance that is different from Okonomiyaki.
You can make Osaka style okonomiyaki in this class.

Hi,I'm Aya, owner of SAKURA.
I was born in Kyoto 1967,raised in Kobe.
As you know,Kyoto is very famous historical city as world heritage but also the Heart of Japanese culture.
People in Kyoto are carefully protecting the culture of Kyoto.
Many tourists come to Kyoto from all over the world, and it is increasing year by year.
According to that, the number of experience classes which teaching Japanese culture are continues to increasing.
But there are also many shops where amateurs are teach you.
They are doing that only for the money.
Of course,they are not introduce the correct Japanese culture.
My husband and me went to the class about various Japanese culture from when we were children.
Since I was 40 years old I studied business administration at the graduate school and got a master's degree.
at least,now, I can do the work I wanted to do.
My husband is a descendant of [Ihee Ito] who developed a cherry tree "Somei Yoshino".
It is the most famous kind of cherry tree in the world.
He was a rich trader in the Edo period, and worked for Shogun [House Tokugawa] as an advisor of their garden.
Me and my husband are very proud of that.
I would like to let you know the right culture of Japan with having fun time with you!
Please come to our place if you come to Kyoto.
I am looking forward to meeting you.

Our experience with Aya was so much fun! Not only did she teach us how to cook Okonomiyaki - but she also taught us history, suggested restaurants and shops to visit, talked with us about Japan, and her husband gave us his CD! Would absolutely recommend any experience with Aya :)
