Enjoyable

We had difficulty finding the meeting place based on the instructions provided. There is no sign and no way to know you have to go to the back of a shop & up the stairs. Should provide a telephone number. Head to meeting place with time to get lost. Even if you find it timely, there are many shops to explore before class. Jiro was a good instructor which made the class fun.
