Amazing experience to know better Japanese culture and food! I was the only one attending the class and Kazumi was great, explaining me all dishes, Japanese history and ingredients behind every recipe. I would definitely recommend it. Thanks!

Our family went to do this cooking class and had a totally wonderful experience. Firstly the instructors, Hiro and Mia had excellent English, were very knowledgable and could explain everything. In addition they were very patient with the less skilled me. The class was informative and fun with a wonderful dining experience at the end. My wife is an excellent cook and she managed to learn a few secrets about Japanese ingredients, cuisine and cooking. Compared to many things in Japan this was great value for money.
Overall this was a great way to spend an afternoon and I would thoroughly recommend to anyone. Five stars

Keiko runs this fun, intimate cooking class in an impeccable kitchen, and this is a must for the 'foodie' tourist.
My husband and I were with 2 other couples, each with their own cooking station, for a fully hands-on class.
There was great food to cook a seven course meal! , recipes to take home, and personal insights and stories from our hosts What food do Kyoto-ites miss most when they leave Japan? What is everyone's favorite lunch snack? What are the staples on every Kyoto dinner table every night, besides rice?
Keiko's English is wonderful, probably because she's lived in the US before. We all laughed ourselves silly at certain points...you'll love this friendly and fun 3.5 hour class. Come hungry!
If walking as we did take note only the larger intersections Omiya Shijo, for example have English signs, so count your blocks carefully. The school is mid-block in a residential district. The English sign is at eye-level, with one foot letters easy to find once you're on the block.

Great Japanese cooking class! Took the afternoon class which was different from the morning one. All ingredients were provided and instructions clear. Class was informative with explanations of each unique ingredient. Made seven home style Japanese dishes including green tea sorbet ice cream...and of course, we got to eat what we made.

Great class! The instructors were super friendly and organized. The menu was awesome I've already made many of the dishes since my trip, and I really enjoyed meeting the other students in the class. I would totally do this again!

The cooking class was wonderful, interactive, and detailed. They even adjusted it for the vegetarian in the group. It's a little tricky to find but well worth it!

Our cooking class experience was fantastic. Great instruction and lots if hands on participation. It was also great fun finding cooking sun amongst all the streets without names!

This was a very enjoyable class. Two of us went in knowing some Japanese style cooking and the other two were complete novices. All of us walked away learning new methods and recipes. Some of the ingredients I was not sure I could find in the states so I asked if they would write the name in kanji and romanji so I could take to local store to purchase and take home. It was such a help as I got what I needed and can recreate recipes at home. It goes without saying, that the best part was eating what we had just cooked!

My boyfriend and I were caught up in Kyoto on a very rainy day and this cooking class was a wonderful way to spend a wet day indoors! The cooking class was extremely enjoyable - we did the afternoon class and cooked and ate our way through a four course meal which was absolutely delicious. We are going to try some of these recipes back home in Australia - would definitely recommend this for a fun afternoon.

This cooking class was great!

The day for my class fell on a public holiday and I was the only student that afternoon. This was probably what made it such a great experience as I had all the attention from the teacher. She was so lovely! She taught me about some basic ingredients and the differences between certain ingredients soy sauce, miso etc. The class was very casual. We just talked through the class and after class we talked some more over tea with the founder of Cooking Sun. I learnt a great deal and keen to start cooking some Japanese food back at home.

Highly recommend! I wouldve booked a morning class the next day but had to leave Kyoto

Small group of nice participants and instructors. However, not enough hands on and a bit disorganised. Charging an additional amount for a glass of Sake that cost 3 time as much a small bottle at the end seemed a bit mean on top of the price.
