      Great cooking class!
      My 12 yr old daughter and I had so much fun in this cooking class! We got to learn to make so many different dishes, and enjoy eating them all at the end. And the women who taught the class spoke English really well, and were very nice! I have done several cooking classes in different countries, and this was the best one I've done so far!

      Amazing cooking class
      As others have said, this class and the food we made were amazing. The staff were very helpful and explained the recipes in detail to allow us to cook them there and replicate at home. A thoroughly enjoyable morning with the Wagyu class.

      Excellent hands-on Japanese cooking classes in Shinjuku, Tokyo
      This was a marvelous, hands-on experience of Japanese cooking. We did the Wagyu course, which involved preparation of a multi-course meal with Wagyu beef at the centre of it (although all of the dishes were superb). The teachers were excellent, fully fluent in English, and the staff looked after all the prep, service, and clean up. The teaching area and equipment were well set up and the teaching staff and prep folks could not have been more pleasant and helpful. At the end of the class, we got to eat the meal that we had prepared and were astonished at what skilled Japanese cooks we had become! ;-) If you're looking for a good, hands-on introduction to Japanese cooking in several styles, I highly recommend Cooking Sun. Be aware: the school is a bit hard to find, on a side street in the Shinjuku area, so hold onto and pay close attention to the instructions they send you on how to find the school.

      Stunning introduction to Japanese cuisine
      We arrived in Tokyo at 6am and went straight to the 9:30am cooking class. Bit difficult to find although it is in a small residential neighborhood near Shinjuku station (we actually thought we were entering someone’s apartment, but the room is custom designed for 8 people and the two very good English speaking cooking instructors. We made 8 dishes over the course of 3 hours and then had a great lunch. Very enjoyable and highly recommended!

      It was such a wonderful experience. The food turned out great with everyone participating in preparation. Megumi and Yuka were excellent teachers and walked the class through every step. The explanations of the ingredients and their significance within the dishes was informative.

      Brilliant introduction to some flavours and techniques in Japanese cuisine
      We were a family of 3 adults. Husband and son not really cooks. I am. It worked for all of us, helping us understand some of the flavours behind the cuisine here and a few techniques. The 2 teachers were excellent and the food we put together really tasty. It was super well organised and engaging and very good value. Highly recommend.

      Cooking Sun Tokyo: 10/10 Teachers and 10/10 Food
      Cooking Sun Tokyo provided a very relaxing and excellent crash course in recreating delicious Japanese dishes while providing an amazing history of some of the ingredients used in our class like the origin of Kombu and Bonito. As someone who cooks everyday, this was a nice change of pace that allowed me to take my time and enjoy cooking. I felt relaxed and shared an awesome time with my girlfriend who also learned a lot on making new exciting dishes. Highly recommend to everyone visiting Tokyo for their first time! Cooking Sun Tokyo は素晴らしいですよ!

    Learned to do different sushi in 3 hours. Despite having only me and my sister attending the class, we had fun and actually learned new things. The sensei, Aya. K is knowledgeable and she shares educational facts about certain food as well. She ensures that we had fun learning in a safe environment, the food was great! Just one of the best sushi i ever had especially the egg roll! The sensei is also good in English also patient with us when we took some time to do certain things. Thank you so much for the warm and different experience! Worth the money, highly recommended!

    Fun afternoon learning to make sushi. We loved the small class environment, the chefs were both really really nice, professional and explained everything well, nice room, facilities, very well organised and nothing disappointed. Both chefs spoke excellent English. We would highly recommend this sushi making class to others. Oh and the sushi tasted so good too. A tip for others, make sure you eat before arriving as you don’t get to eat your lovely prepared food till the end of the class. Allow plenty of time for arrival. We used google maps to guide us and found the location ok.

    We had the most wonderful time during our sushi making class at the Cooking Sun! Our instructors, Yuki and Hidemi, were very welcoming, knowledgeable, encouraging and patient! The class instruction included lots of background information about the history of the ingredients, etc, which definitely enhanced the experience! The process of making the sushi was very enjoyable and getting to eat our creations at the end was so wonderful. We would book another class at the Cooking Sun in a heartbeat and will definitely be recommending it to friends! Thank you so much Yuki and Hidemi!

    My wife and I did a sushi making class and had a great time! There were three instructors and you could tell a lot of time, effort, and care has gone into how they run their classes. Everything little thing from the already prepared ingredients (chopped veggies, cooked rice) to the utensils ready to go, "mise en place" was a priority for our instructors. What I appreciated the most was that the class was a unique cultural exchange experience between not only us and our instructors, but the Indonesian family that was also taking the class with us too. It helped make the world feel a little more smaller and connected through the power of cooking and food, which was very special and a highlight of our stay in Tokyo.

    I did this activity with my daughter and it was realy fun. The three ladies who ran the course were all lovely and so patient and helpful for us beginners as we tried making sushi. They explained every part of the process and we followed their instructions. We ended up making some lovely sushi which all tasted delicious. This was a great way to spend an afternoon in Tokyo and I recommend it 100%.

    the women were so helpful and fun. They explained everything really well. I had a brilliant time ! I made Vegetarian rolls because I don’t eat fish, and they were gorgeous. We made Californian rolls, they showed us a fish that I thought was a tree at first. It was a really enjoyable experience and I ate everything on my plate. Thank you

    We arrived and were greeted warmly by the staff who got us situated, hands washed, aprons on and ready to have some fun. After learning about the ingredients it was time to get started. We first made dashi then tamagoyaki and got the abura started. We learned how to prepare the rice and were ready to roll! 3 different sushi rolls and 7 nigiri later we moved on to making the miso soup. After grating our own Wasabi, it was time to feast and laugh. Our diverse group and instructors all had a great afternoon and everyone left with a full belly. Highly recommend!

    Class size of about 10, so small enough for it to be enjoyable. The two instructors were prepared and organized. They made it fun, and were very attentive to our questions and comments. Everyone in the room became friends by the end of the class. My group was surprised that we enjoyed it as much as we did. Would recommend….
