Japanese food has never been more popular. The idea of using locally sourced, seasonal fresh ingredients for everyday cooking began here hundreds of years ago. It’s no wonder that Japanese restaurants have received more Michelin gold stars than the rest of the world combined.
If you’re into cooking or work in the culinary industry, there’s no better place to learn Washoku (traditional Japanese food) than right where it started. Most cooking classes here are taught in English. The traditional ingredients, preparation and way of eating Japanese food have been recognized by UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. From sushi to the finest Wagyu beef and Udon noodles, we can all agree that Japanese food is fresh, delicious and proudly made with nature’s finest ingredients.
