Dear guests,

Hello, I am Taro the owner of Haru Cooking Class -Kyoto-.

You can learn a lot about Japanese culture by learning about Japanese food.
Food plays a big role in our culture.

In Haru Cooking Class -Kyoto-, you will cook Japanese home dishes.
I cannot teach fancy dishes as I am not a professional chef.
However, I do my best to show and explain what Japanese people eat normally.

I thank everybody who come all the way to Japan.
I wish for my guests to finish the class with a deeper understanding of Japan and Japanese people,
not only Japanese food.

If you have not yet decided what to do in Kyoto, please choose Haru Cooking Class.
Please do not hesitate to join the class if you are a beginner cook;
"I just wanted to enter a Japanese home"
"I just wanted to eat Kobe beef"
"I just wanted to eat good vegetarian food"
"I just wanted to meet Haruko"

Any reason is ok, as long as it leads you to the new experience of a fun Japanese cooking!

I look very forward to meeting you!
If you have time before the cooking class, here are some of the things to do around my neighborhood!

Best regards,
Taro Saeki
