Authentic Japanese Cooking Class - the best souvenir from Kyoto! You will learn: ・ how to cook authentic Japanese dishes in English ・ Japanese table manners ・ the history and culture of Japanese cuisine ・ and much more! Japanese cooking class Roujiya gives you not only cooking lessons. We'd like to show Japanese cultures and customs as well. Japan has the four seasons, each of which has its own seasonal festivals, and a variety of annual events.

First time ever making sushi and everything turned out great. The teacher spoke fluent English and was very knowledgeable about the traditions and customs of Japanese cuisine. We had a class of 5 students and everyone had a good time.
