What you'll do

You'll be greeted with welcome drinks and friendly stuff members. We'll have a little introduction session where you can get to know other participants and make new friends.

We are kicking off the session with teaching how to cook Monjayaki, a traditional Japanese apetizer. You can enjoy the conversation with the neighbors while having the tasty food you just prepared. We are then moving onto the Okonomiyaki and Yakisoba lessons you'll learn the skills which has been passed on for generations. A dessert will be served after the great meal, and you can stay for a while to enjoy the special Osakan atmosphere.

I'm the 3rd generation executive chef at Kaze no Machi Restaurants, a traditional Osakan restaurant with 80+ years of history. My father and ground father served throughout their lives to pass on the important food culture of Osaka. Food lies in the core of Osakan people, and I've been cooking traditional cuisines from Osaka for over 10 years. It's my mission to share our food culture with people from around the world.

私は、大阪の老舗“風の街”の三代目です。“食”は大阪の最も大切な文化の一つであり、祖父と父は大阪の“食”を後世に残すべく尽力してきました。その文化をより多くの人に共有して頂くことが、幼き頃より訓練を受けてきた私の願いです。

Yoshi is an expert to teach how to cook okonomiyaki since his family has been making them for a few generations. He gave a really personal lesson, shared some of his life with me and we ate a delicious meal together. I can't ask for anything more.

We truly recommend this cooking class and not least Yoshi who was a wonderful teacher and host! In addition to learning how to cook the delicious Osaka-style Okonomiyaki as well as a noodle dish and a traditional Japanese appetizer, you are also ensured a good time with Yoshi who is fun and knowledgeable to be around. If you have the time for it, take a walk in the area of Kyobashi before or after the class and enjoy the neighborhoods vibe.

Amazing experience! Would really recommend this to anyone visiting Osaka. Yoshi was a great host and not only taught us the art of okonomiyaki cooking, but made us feel welcome and shared tips and facts about Japan with us. Thank you Yoshi!
