Cooking Classes in Osaka

Osaka is a very famous city in Japan. Thousands of tourists go every year to check out land marks, including Osaka castle. But did you know? Osaka is also a place with a thriving street food culture. You can find many of your favorite street foods including but not limited to, Takoyaki (octopus balls), teppanyaki, okonomiyaki (Japanese savory pancake) and even kushi katsu (a type of fried skewer with various vegetables and meats). You can find these in just about any area of Osaka, from the back streets, to historical landmarks. But unfortunately when you go back home you can't take those street vendors with you. So do yourself a favor, search the many cooking classes available on airKitchen, learn from the real life people of Osaka, in a personal setting.

  • 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.

  • GYOZA -JAPANESE DUMPLINGS FROM SCRATCH

    Cooking class in Suita, Osaka

    ¥5000 per person

    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!!!
