An old private townhouse “Kyo-Machiya” beautifully shapes the town of Kyoto. In this program, you can not only view this traditional townhouse but you can also make reservations to stay here.
Why don’t you stay in a traditional Kyoto townhouse (Machiya) built 130 years ago and experience Japanese cuisine?
Spend the day as if you were living as a member of Old Kyoto back in the day, in traditional Kyoto Ryokan (Japanese Inn) settings; futon in the tatami room, shoji sliding door, tsubo-niwa (Japanese courtyard garden), and feel the old Kyoto!
In order for you to have an authentic and unique experience of Kyoto culture, we offer cooking experiences and a local shopping street tour in this program!
JAPANESE CULINARY CLASS:
This Japanese culinary class has taught more than 3,000 students in total.

YOU WILL LEARN:
This Japanese cooking class gives you more than just cooking lessons. We’d like to show Japanese cultures and customs as well.
Japan has the four seasons, each of which has its own seasonal festivals, and a variety of annual events. Hear about the history of traditional events, and how people celebrate them to make your stay even more enjoyable in Japan.
In addition, if you know even a little bit of table manners, you can feel much more relaxed in Japanese restaurants!
