Take a guided walk through Nishiki food markets and enjoy a Japanese cooking class on this small-group walking tour from Kyoto. You'll explore the back streets of Kyoto with their many interesting shops, and learn how to make Japanese home-cooked food from ingredients bought at the Nishiki food markets in an afternoon Kyoto cooking class.

You'll meet your local English-speaking guide at a central meeting spot at 2:30pm to embark on a small-group Kyoto walking tour that will delight your senses.

During a one-hour guided walk of the mile-long Nishiki covered food markets, there are many interesting food stores to explore as you help your guide buy the ingredients for your Japanese cooking class. This is a great opportunity to learn about local Japanese produce.

After visiting the markets, you'll travel through the back streets and lanes of Kyoto, to a sake brewery museum. Enjoy sake tasting as you learn how this popular Japanese alcoholic beverage is produced.

Continue to a traditional 'machiya' wooden townhouse for your Japanese cooking class. At approximately 5pm you can start cooking your own Japanese dinner, you'll learn how to make rolled sushi, miso soup and cooked salad with seasonal fruit for dessert.

After dinner the afternoon is free for you to explore Kyoto, or your local guide can assist you in returning to your hotel.
