Japanese Street Food Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki Class

Learn how to make Japan’s most popular street foods Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki from scratch!




Okonomiyaki and takoyaki are probably the most famous Osakan street foods and they are extremely popular in festivals across Japan! In this class, you will learn how to make Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki , and also learn how to make homemade dashi stock to make an umami rich soup. We will start by introducing the ingredients, then have a cooking session, and finally we eat what we have made with a bottle of cold Japanese beer!


  • Okonomiyaki (savoury pancake with favourite toppings, such as seafood, pork, Japanese brown sauce and dancing bonito flakes)
  • Takoyaki (fried round umami-rich batter stuffed with octopus, topped with Japanese brown sauce and dancing bonito flakes) We will use takoyaki pans (see above picture).
  • Dashi – Japanese stock
  • Miso and ginger soup

Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements in advance, so we can find alternative ingredients to suit your diet. Unfortunately, this class is not suitable for people with wheat allergy, coeliac disease and gluten intolerance.

To make Takoyaki at home, you will need a special Takoyaki pan available for purchase at Japan Centre. They’re definitely worth it and are such a perfect party food. There is a reason why they are so popular!
