In the age of the Internet you can find Things to do unusual, that certainly come out of the logic of organized trips.
Such as Japanese cooking classes. How to miss the opportunity to learn some secrets of a culture so fascinating?
Saturday, March 14, in Kyoto, we will be guests of Emi-san, and in 3h will try to experience live Japanese cuisine, trying the preparation of dishes (we hope!).
Probably we will not be able to learn a lot, but given the Japanese natural predisposition to be shy and closed to foreigners, to cook with one of them will still be an experience worthy of note.
Moreover, visit remote places like Japan allows us to get in touch with some aspects of local daily life. The museums, stations, parks, in general, all the tourist sites, are by definition… tourist-y. And very often, they are places rarely frequented by the locals. In three years at the school of Engineering, at the Colosseum in Rome, I will be passed by the Roman remains, I think twice, including once for my graduation.
Hence to participate in Japanese cooking classes, taught by Japanese in Japan is an excellent opportunity to see first hand the various aspects of Japanese culture.
In addition to the cooking class, Emi-san offers a pottery class. I think it’s obvious that we will also attend that one…
