In Japan, Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki can cook in their home, but it is not delicious as much as like restaurant.
In Otafuku Sauce, which is famous for Okonomiyaki sauce distributor, they have the cooking class. It is easy to join, and they will teach us how to cook Okonomiyaki/Takoyaki.
That company headquarter is located in Hiroshima prefecture, but they also have the office in Tokyo so that you can join to class in Tokyo.
These classes attendance fee are less than 1000 JPY(≒9USD), so you may not hesitate to join that!
Joined to Okonomiyaki cooking class
This time, I participate in basic Okonomiyaki class.
It is the primary target for the business person and held from 7 PM to 8:30 PM so I joined that class from after hours.
Attendance fee is 700 JPY(≒6.5USD) per person, and you just have to bring apron and sling(to cover your hair).
The classroom is located near Kiba station and named "Otafuku Tokyo Honbu Okonomiyaki Kensyu Center"(オタフク東京本部 お好み焼き研修センター), so you can walk there about 5 minutes from the station.
At that building, they have a basic class and for business class.
In the first floor, they have the shop, and you can see/purchase their items.
After you register and pay attendance fee at the cashier, move to the 2nd floor and let's get started!
