Participants made and ate their own takoyaki under the instruction of Kappou Yama Chef. Many people said it was their first time eating takoyaki.
Aside from takoyaki, the participants ate yakitori, okonomiyaki, tempura, etc., but since everyone became so full, they took a lot of left overs home in a take-out bag. Everyone was fully satisfied with the event.
