Cooking Classes in Osaka

Osaka is a very popular tourist destination in Japan, known especially for its friendly locale and thriving food culture. Street food vendors sell tasty favorites like takoyaki (octopus balls) and okonomiyaki (a Japanese savory pancake). Tucked away from the busy streets, you’ll find small shops serving delicious sushi, ramen, and udon, all with Osaka’s unique spin on them. Of course, when you leave Osaka and head back home, you won’t be able to bring these street vendors and sushi chefs with you – why not learn how to cook some of these classic Osaka dishes from locals during your stay? Then you can bring the tastes of Osaka back home with you and share them with your loved ones! And yes, there are cooking classes for vegetarians and vegans.

Our cooking class with Yucco was Great! When we planned our trip to Japan, we wanted to do a Ramen cooking class that focuses more on the broth and the ramen ingredients, rather than making the noodles themselves. This was exactly the case with Yucco's cooking class. We made a chicken based broth...

I really enjoyed airKitchen cooking class in Osaka. When I got engaged last year, my husband (then fiance) suggested a trip as a getaway from the plenty of pre-wedding pressure. Part of the trip package was this cultural exchange program, and I was thrilled with the thought of learning a Japanese...

Soba(buckwheat noodles) is a traditional dish loved in Japan for a long time. Soba made from buckwheat flour is boiled and eaten with soba soup.

We loved our soba making experience with Hiro. His studio is truly incredible- clean, modern, spacious and authentically Japanese. The studio is a short walk from a train stop and he was kind enough to meet us there so and guide us so we didn’t get lost. Soba is a very complex noodle to make but ...

This was one of the highlights of our two weeks in Japan. I even bought a tamagoyaki pan that afternoon so I can cook them at home. :-) I know you'll get the timing down for the rice, but we never would have guessed we were your first guests. You were very prepared! Thank you Sawa!

  • Let's make artistic sushi !

    Cooking class in Fukushimia, Osaka

    ¥5000 per person

    Toko was amazing! Wonderful host who made us feel so welcome and comfortable. She was very patient in teaching us and answered many questions we had. She went beyond just teaching us how to make artistic sushi, she even explained on the desert she made and told her where we could get the ingredients. Highly recommend her class to anyone coming to Osaka.

    Our time with Naomi was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. Naomi was very welcoming and informative. She speaks excellent English and we had no trouble communicating with her. We would absolutely recommend this class, not only do you learn how to cook a fabulous traditional meal but you get completely immersed in local culture. You get a glimpse into a Japanese home and kitchen, you will use traditional Japanese methods and tools, there is no better way to see how the locals live and cook. We had a blast with Naomi, she was fun, friendly, and bubbly, she was informative about Osaka, local sights/attractions, and gave us recommendations for other things to do while in town. Thank you Naomi for a lifetime memory. Everyone should take this class!!!

    Nozomi was an absolutely wonderful host. Anne and I had a lot of fun and learned many things especially in regards to bento boxes, Japanese culture and other topics. I hope she continues to get the support from others and is able to keep doing this. :)
