Full description
Meet up with your instructor at 11:00 AM in the reception of the cooking studio (either in Marunouchi or Nihonbashi), both located within walking distance from Tokyo Station. Apron, handy towel, chef hat and beverages will all be included.

Following the instruction of an experienced cooking teacher, you’ll learn how to fry crispy tempura. While frying tempura (shrimps, vegetables, mushrooms, etc.), also learn to cook the rice in a pot and to make tempura dipping sauce by using dashi (Japanese soup stock) with many cooking tips. In addition, experience Warabimochi (bracken-starch jelly) making using its ingredients kit.

Finish your experience having lunch and with a sampling of 5 different Shochus (Japanese National alcohol). Savor various ingredients such as rice, barley, brown sugar, sweet potato and mango. Shochu is different than “Sake" as it is distilled while sake (called Nihonshu in Japan) is a brewed rice. You can enjoy Shochu not only on the rocks or straight, just like whiskey, but also with soda and juice which is called a Sour Cocktail.
