Priceless Cities

Traditional Japanese Cooking Workshop In-House

Japanese cuisine is revered globally for its exquisite taste and attention to detail. Have a private 1-on-1 culinary workshop and let our specially-trained local chefs guide you through the steps of crafting simple dishes into feasts for the senses.

Ministry of Villas will arrange for a private culinary workshop in the comfort of your own Niseko home. A local chef will visit your chalet and show you how to prepare authentic Japanese dishes including miso soup, tsuemono, traditional pickled vegetables and a choice of one main and a side dish.

Spend the evening being guided step-by-step by our Japanese master chef in a personal one-of-a-kind experience preparing meals alongside you in your villa or chalet. Learn the local secrets of their world-renowned dishes, and feel the exhilaration of being able to feast on the end result having become an Asian food-cooking extraordinaire.
