Tokyo is a fantastic place for food, but Sato enhances the food experience to another level! Sato opens his home to you to give you a true appreciation of Japanese culture as well as the deliciousness of Asian cuisine! His friendly and open personality puts you at ease from the moment you meet him. He’s willing to share his story and history which creates an atmosphere of trust. The class becomes more than just a cooking class, rather it’s cooking with friends! The absolute star attraction however is the food! We made Ramen and Gyozas which were just out of this world. Sato gives great, simple tips that you can take home with you. If food is something you love (and surely that’s why you’re coming to Tokyo?), an evening with Sato is highly recommend! Thanks so much Sato for an incredible night!
Satoru-san was a great teacher who was happy to share his life story and why cooking is so important to him, as well as answering our questions and making fun conversation in the appropriate moments. Also, it was very interesting to visit a local's home and see what delicious Japanese food can be made at home! We didn't only watched the cooking but also participated in the process, chopping, seasoning, prepping, and so on, while learning about the ingredients, the recipe and their place in Japanese cooking, making it all the more fun.
Had such an amazing experience learning traditional Japanese cooking today!! Sato is a great chef, great company and great tour guide. Best ramen and gyoza’s we’ve had (and first time making). Definitely recommend this cooking experience with Sato!!! :)
A guided tour through Harajuku and Shibuya was a great way to cover these key areas efficiently and cover the highlights. After the tour we wandered again through some of the areas we had been shown eg Cat Street and the cool little roads around there.
It was a pleasant walk and the weather was good. I wish it would have been longer but I was able to stop by and buy some fruits. The only thing I am still scared to go out on my own not very good with directions and not familiar with the dialect
