The first Japanese person to eat gyōza is said to be Tokugawa Mitsuaki in the Edo Period. He was from the same clan as the ruling shogun at the time.
By the Meiji Period, from the 1860s, there was a Chinese restaurant serving gyoza and recipes were introduced in cookbooks.
The term used then was Chaozu, borrowed from the Chinese language. So the food itself was not something enjoyed by the common people.
After the Second World War, many soldiers returned to Japan from China, with a knowledge of Chinese food and culture. From that time on, gyoza became widely popular among the general population of Japan.
The Japanese style of gyōza, grilled rather than boiled or steamed, became mainstream. One story suggests the returning soldiers found it easier to use an iron plate to cook them, rather than a deep pot.
These days, Ramen and gyōza are found in Chinese restaurants, ramen shops, supermarket shelves and department stores, as well as being an easy to make at home.
In this class,you can make Japanese Ramen and Gyoza only by vegetables.

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.
