Great tour, great recipes.
A quick tour of the amazing Nishiki market, we were given lots of history and food facts. The shops we stopped at were chosen to give a full experience (like seeing the fermentation of vegetables instead of plastic wrapped ones). We sampled so many iconic Kyoto foods. Yes, I did eat the octopus stuffed with egg.

Our guides are amazingly attentive: noting how much I love mushrooms, they bought some seasonal autumn mushrooms for our tempura. Same again for figs for dessert. They were really good with our kids too.

Back at the kitchen we started making the dashi - the basis for our meals. Our family of 5 chose at least one of the three recipes on offer. Three having tendon, the 9yo choosing kaisendon, and myself having oyakodon. Each was simple and delicious. We were guided through the steps and felt comfortable at all times. At the end we each tasted the others.

My family each said this was their favourite experience in Japan so far!

The Market Tour was a highlight
Sep 2018 • Solo
The studio was only six or seven blocks from my hotel, so I walked over. It turned out that I was the only student, so I had a really personal class. The market tour was fun and I sampled some food as we walked up and down through the different stalls. I also bought some items to take home. After we bought the necessary ingredients, we went back and started cooking and preparing. To save time, the instructor took care of getting the rice started and the kombu soaking for the dashi. The most challenging part of the class was learning how to make the tamago roll.

Highlight of Kyoto
Apr 2018 • Couples
Fun day, girls took us to the market and explained what we were seeing. Purchased ingredients for our lunch. Kitchen was organized, clean. Girls were very helpful, courteous. Their English was excellent. Food we made was delicious and easy enough recipes you could make at home. A nice break from temples and shrines.Thanks for providing another great experience. MJ-Canada

Market tour provide insight into Japanese cuisine
Apr 2018 • Couples
Brilliant class. I was a bit concerned as a rice bowl seemed too simple, but I definitely wanted a market tour. I have done a few market tours in south east asia and its a great way to learn not only what that odd thing over there is, but how it is used. And in this case, what it tastes like. We were taken through the busy market with enough time to look, ask questions and taste many of the products on sale. Stuff I wouldnt have tried if I were on my own.
Our guide purchased ingredients for our chosen meals and then we returned to the studio for tea and the class. We had chosen the chicken and egg rice bowl and the seafood rice bowl. I am still talking about how something so simple as the chicken and egg ricebowl was so delicious.
I would definitely recommend to everyone
