    tl;dr? Just register already!

    I had been in Japan for 10 days : big cities, monkey mountains, bamboo forests, temples, museums and other landmarks, but this has been my best cultural experience so far in Japan. You could not guess how much work and experience goes into that single bite of tofu that ends up in your mouth, especially coming from these small, very hands-on businesses and this workshop is enlightening in this regard.

    The tofu artisan, Kame-san, has a very kind-hearted and cheerful temperament and so has his wife with whom we could have more than superficial conversations, thanks to the near-perfect english level of the interpreter. And all that around more than a few plates of one of the tastiest tofu I have eaten so far !
