The GrandWest Arashiyama is welcoming you and your family and friends to try our authentic Japanese Home-cooking Experience.
Spend a couple hours with a local Kyoto mom who will be teaching you how to make simple yet beloved homemade Japanese dishes
in our inviting hotel. You can savor the memories that you make at our hotel when you make the recipes again at home.
A member of our hotel staff who’s fluent in English will be taking part in the class to bridge the language gap and act
as your interpreter, so you will be able to ask questions about the cook, Japanese food, and general Japanese life.
The main focus of the dishes you will make will be around everyday Japanese food with a Kyoto twist.
Our class will introduce you to everyday recipes that re-energize the Japanese family at the end of the day
– what you can’t buy at convenience stores or restaurants. This is a great way to experience
what Japanese people eat every day at home and see why Japanese cuisine is on the UNESCO Cultural Heritage list.
The cooking class will consist of:
- Interacting with a local mom who will teach you delicious Japanese recipes
- A hotel staff member who will interpret from Japanese to English and English to Japanese
- Hands-on cooking with your loved ones and friends
- Eating the meal that you’ve cooked together
- A copy of the recipe (in English) to take home with you
- Group photo with Mom
