Cooking for kids Tokyo (Onigiri, takoyaki snack)


Let your kids “cook” some wonderful Japanese treats. Japan has a variety of snacks that encourage children to use their creative skills. With an English-speaking instructor, your child will learn how to make instant foods like rice ball , takoyaki snacks from pre-measured ingredients. Up to five children can join at a time, and the duration of each lesson is about 1 hour.



  • Your children are introduced to popular Japanese snacks
  • Children engage their creativity and imagination in making their own food
  • Constant supervision is provided, and a safe environment is maintained
  • Videos of the activities are made so you can preserve your memories
  • Try a diverse range of ingredients and flavours unique to Japan

Encourage your children’s creativity and autonomy by giving them a chance to make their own food in a safe and supervised environment. Japan offers easy cooking like onigiri or lots of snacks that can be enjoyed only by following complicated instructions. Although these treats provide Japanese children with entertainment along with their snacks, non-Japanese kids often can’t understand what they need to do. With an English-speaking guide, your children will be taught the procedures to fully enjoy all that Japanese snacks have to offer. Children are provided step-by-step guidance, but are given enough freedom to feel a sense of accomplishment as they figure out the steps for making their own treats. Each demonstration is limited to five kids, so each child can be given a lot of person attention and assistance. Bring your children into the kitchen and watch their faces light up when they learn new skills in their own cooking adventure!
