Cooking with YAYO - Friendly & accommodating experience!
Mar. 2020
This was a great activity and would highly recommend anyone interested in preparing Japanese food to give this a try! Yayo was patient and answered any questions I had asked. I made nigiri sushi as well as tamagoyaki served with taiyaki for dessert with shots of great tasting sake (both hot & cold) along with a locally crafted beer (Minoh Beer) – Weizen. I had gone in mid-July 2019 where it was very humid & in rainy season. The added accommodation of a creative ice pack vest helped a lot through the session as well. My only regret was not taking up Yayo’s offer of a rain coat at the end of the session as it had been raining pretty hard back then. Other than that, I had a wonderful, memorable time! Would enjoy going back in the future for a different meal to prepare. (No option to select a time before March 2020).

Visited Osaka with a group of friends, and my Boyfriend. And we all agreed to book this Class with YAYO. One of the best experiences ever. She was so organized, lovely presentation of Sushi. I still have my origami she gifted us at the end of the course. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to that area.

Nov. 2019
This class was extremely fun as the instructor was very friendly and it was just me and my girlfriend whom attended. We were greeted by her dog who was absolutely lovely and friendly.

The instructors English is quite good.

Now, she has printed out sheets which advise you of the recipe and she explains each of the dishes, the instructions, and a bit of history or fun facts about the dish very well. She set up all the equipment and resources required beforehand so it flowed quite well when beginning the class.

The class itself was very fun and we ended up making a variety of dishes.

Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend you give it a crack if you're keen to learn how to make some Japanese food.

This was one of our high lights on our trip to Osaka. It was well worth the money. Yayo was lovely and patient in showing you how to prepare all the dishes You have chosen. Akane her cute little dog was adorable. She sat on her chair and watched the whole time.

Jun. 2019
I am quite delayed on this review, but late is better than never! This class is a blast! As a sushi-lover finally getting to learn how to make all kinds of sushi myself was both an intriguing experience as well as a delight! Yayo sensei was very skilled at teaching, even if you can't cook I would recommend the class.

Sep. 2019 • Friends
This is a must do when visiting the Osaka area. The three of us had a wonderful time with Yayo, who is such a great encouraging instructor, and is so nice and sweet you don’t want to leave. The sushi was amazing and the background provided by Yayo on the ingredients and traditional Japanese customs are priceless. If you are a foodie and a sushi lover, sign up for this class.

Absolute can't-miss while in Osaka!
Sep. 2019
This was SUCH a wonderful experience - every single part of it. We made a variety of different traditional Japanese dishes and they all tasted wonderful, especially after learning more about the history and background of each one. The instructions are explained thoroughly, and with photos and demonstrations. Don't even think twice about booking this experience!
