What you'll do

A 100-year-old guest house in a quaint old house, where you can cook local dishes of Okonomiyaki. Ingredients are available at local supermarkets, but if you are interested in organic vegetables, you can harvest fresh vegetables in the fields behind your house.
We will teach you the unique cooking method using trowels and how to decorate with sauce and bonito. The steam and smell coming out of the hot plate will surely add to your appetite. When finished, let's enjoy it around the dining table.
Other things to note
Meet at Kintetsu Nara Line Higashihanaen Station North Exit. Please use semi-express or regular trains at Higashi Hanazono Station, as the express train will not stop.
Aprons are not provided, so please come in good clothes.

I was born and raised in Higashiosaka and have been running a guest house in an old private house where I have lived since my grandfather's time. Osaka is famous for its powder, and I especially like okonomiyaki. We always bake and eat for New Years, family birthdays, and home parties with friends. I want many people around the world to know how to make and taste okonomiyaki.

Where you'll be

Meet at Higashi Hanazono Station. Shop at a local supermarket and head to an old private house, very close to the famous Hanazono Rakubi.
There is a torii gate on the site of the old private house, so you can experience an unusual experience of going through it without going to a shrine. There are fields behind the house, and those who are worried can harvest vegetables.

ゲストハウス敷地内の農園で作られた 採れたて新鮮野菜の若ゴボウを キャベツの代わりにお好み焼きに使用していただきました 食感がしゃきしゃきで 生まれも育ちも大阪ですが 目からウロコです 贅沢な食事をさせていただきました

ホストの畑から自分の手で野菜を収穫できます。だから野菜の育った環境がわかり安心して食べれます。 なによりもゲストを迎える気持ちが随所に感じることができました。 とても楽しい時間を過ごせるので、季節の野菜と一緒にお好み焼き体験をオススメできます!
