    Learn the history of Soba and make Soba noodles near Tokyo!

    Learn the history of Soba and make Soba noodles near Tokyo! My husband and I went for the soba making experience and we absolutely loved it.
    The restaurant is a little out the way, but that only adds to its appeal.
    Our soba sensei helped explain the steps in preparing soba, while keeping the atmosphere light and fun, and helping out with taking nice photos :)

    After we were done with preparing the noodles, we were able to watch them being cooked and there was a table ready for us to enjoy the fruits of our labor. There were a couple of nice surprises to top off the experience.

    All in all it was a lovely experience and we recommend it to anyone looking for a fun Japanese experience.

    Cook and eat Japanese style breakfast in Asakusa

    Cook and eat Japanese style breakfast in Asakusa We took Matsu-san's class on a whim, and it ended up becoming one of our favorite experiences while we were in Japan! We met at 9 AM and concluded the class around 11:30 AM after we ate breakfast. Being taught how to cook a traditional Japanese breakfast was a great way to conclude our trip.

    We met in front of hotel (about a 12 minute walk from our hotel) near his apartment, which was right around the corner. He welcomed us inside his apartment and gave us a tour.

    To start the "Breakfast in Asakusa" experience, we made origami name tags. It was a fun, yet educational ice breaker. He was very patient, helpful, and encouraging. Some of the origami folds were hard!

    We had the choice of wearing two different aprons (I opted for the regular one while my fiance chose the traditional one. Once we added our name tags to the apron, we were ready to get started!

    The cooking portion was wonderful. We had discussed prior what we wanted to cook, and he took our suggestions into consideration. Our menu included miso soup, tamagoyaki (Japanese rolled egg), grilled saury, boiled leafy greens, and onigiri. He even served us natto, which I told him I wanted to try.

    Matsu-san and his friend who came to assist, talked and demonstrated every step of the cooking process. I liked how they let us learn hands-on, too. We cut all the vegetables, mixed sauces, prepped the saury in aluminum foil to bake, washed the rice, filled and packed the onigiri, and even rolled the tamagoyaki. The tamagoyaki was the hardest part (trying to roll and flip at the same time isn't as easy as it sounds, nor is it as easy as Matsu-san makes it seem), but they were encouraging and very supportive even if the omelettes weren't pretty!

    The table set with the fruits of our labor, we were finally ready to eat. Matsu-san let us pick cute chopstick rests to use and taught us to say, "Itadakimasu!" The food was delicious! It was one of our favorite meals in Japan. While we ate, he asked us about our experience in Japan, places we visited, and what else was left in our itinerary. We also chatted about our lives and what we did back home. It was such a pleasant conversation.

    After we ate, he gave us a packet with instructions on how to cook all of the dishes. We were excited to receive it!

    At the end of class, we said our goodbyes to his friend and thanked them for a wonderful meal. He walked us outside and gave us directions to get to our next route. We left the experience smiling and craving more traditional Japanese food! Highly recommend Matsu-san's class! We're looking forward to booking another experience with him.

    Some things to note before you book:
    - If you are camera-shy, he does snap photos of you while you cook. He sends them to you after the class is over, which I greatly appreciated!

    - He wasn't 100% fluent in English, but it was easy to understand him!

    - He told us about a shopping street nearby where you can buy kitchenware similar to what was used during the class. We didn't have time to check out the shopping street, so if you're interested make sure you set time aside to see it!

    Experience Handmade Udon Noodle Making

    Experience Handmade Udon Noodle Making We had a great time learning to make udon noodles and tasting sake with this amazing character! A little far outside of Osaka tourist areas but not hard to reach via the train. Hiro was very welcoming and enthusiastic opening his restaurant to us and practicing broken English while we practiced/butchered Japanese.

    We definitely left a little buzzed but with full bellies of our own made noodles! 100% recommend!

    Try to make handmade Udon noodles in Osaka!

    Try to make handmade Udon noodles in Osaka! Had an amazing time and great learning experience with Sally at Udonzin Restaurant in Osaka. She spoke English which made my learning experience more enjoyable and Sally did an awesome job of showing us the inside secrets and techniques of making udon noodles from scratch and then we all ate our delicious udon noodles for lunch. We had two options to enjoy our udon either hot or cold. I chose the hot option with the thin soup broth as shown in my photo and was hands down the best tasting udon i have ever eaten. I would highly recommend taking this class from her as she is a great teacher. I am a professional chef back home in Los Angeles and will share the love to my students next term and what i have learned from Sally was all on point ^_^
