Yoshie, our guide for the Market tour and Sake tasting was excellent. At the market, we purchased the ingredients for our cooking class and learned about the various foods on sale. She also taught us some small Japanese phrases to use.
Mieko, our teacher for the cooking class also was outstanding - we made dashi, miso soup, rolled egg omelette and Sushi for dinner.
The whole experience was fun and informative and our groups was only 4 people. Highly recommend the experience.

The tour guide was knowledgable, and the market we explored with her was fascinating. The brewery was similarly interesting, with samples of delicious beer and sake. We learned a lot about Japanese food and beverages, including the sake-brewing process. Finally, the cooking class was very fun and we produced simple, delicious food under the guidance of a patient instructor. This was a highlight of our time in Kyoto.

We travelled as a group of 6 adults aged between 19-53 on this wonderfully engaging and interactive tour. Although it went for several hours we were sad to say goodbye. We had knowledgeable women walk us around the back blocks of Kyoto proudly showing us their markets, their special foods, their magnificient department store produce, then a very interesting insight and educational session on the making of sake and finally a delicious dinner partly prepared by our group pf 12 but under the expert guidance and care of the most beautiful ,humble and gentle Kyoto women. Sensational!
