We had our own chef instructing us all afternoon in cooking several Japanese dishes. We ended up by eating the meal we had cooked - delicious! A fun and good value experience.

Miyuki showed us some beautiful scenery of Hida Furukawa and was very knowledgable about the local area. Was a great way to get to see rural Japan on well maintained bikes. Thank you for a great morning Miyuki. Sarah, Bernie and Owen
