We had a blast at Taro's Haru Cooking Class. I'm a serious home cook and wanted to learn how to incorporate Japanese dishes into my repertoire, and this class was very helpful. My favorite takeaways were the importance of Dashi (and how to make it...More
What can I say that others haven't? This class is phenomenal! Taro invites you into his own home to learn about and make Japanese home-cooking with his own, regular cooking equipment. You can't ask for a more authentic experience. It's super informative, super chill, and...More

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
