Learn Home-style Japanese Cooking in English: Reservation


Welcome to Kitchen Minori !
★★Cooking classes are currently not available for reservations until the end of October 2023.

I was born and raised in Kyoto and my family has been running a food shop for about  80 years on a shopping street near my kitchen.

My house is a 90-year-old Japanese traditional Machiya town house.

I try to make the cooking class small because I would like people who visit me feel at ease and spend a happy time together.

Maximum number of participants is 4 to 6 people. Please make yourself at home in my house and let’s cook home-style Japanese dishes together!

Besides foods, I will introduce you some authentic seasonings as well.

Obanzai is the word for home cooking in Kyoto dialect and the recipes are passed down for generations.

I will let you know some simple but tasty and healthy obanzai, too.


◆◆Date: please contact me for the dates.

◆◆Pick-up time & place: 10:30 am JR Nijo Station ticket gate

or you can directly come to my place (I will give you the address after the reservation is complete).

◆◆Time Duration:3 hours +1 hour guide at nearby shopping arcade.

-after lunch I guide you to the shopping arcade near my house. It is the longest arcade in Kyoto and very interesting to see the local shops and contacting local people. If you want to buy particular things, I can take you to the shops! It will take an hour to guide you (if you are in a hurry, I can make it shorter.)

◆◆Lesson Fee:10,000 yen/person (ingredients cost, recipe and guide fee included)

●Please inquire about children’ s fee individually.

●Payment: By cash on spot (Japanese Yen only).

-Reservation should be made from 2 people. It is impossible to accept single guest.

I have to charge you 100% for cancellation from 3 days before the class date.

Please understand the situation.


We will make home-style dishes using fish, seafoods, meat, vegetables and some local specialities: 1 main dish, 3 side dishes and soup. Japanese sweets and tea will also be served after the meal. I will show you some of my homemade preserved food like miso, pickled plums and so on. You can taste it.

-If you are a vegetarian, or cannot eat particular ingredients, please let me know in advance.
