Cooking Class

Our wishes

Japanese homemade dishes are very healthy, well presented and delicious. We want to share our special recipes with you that have been inherited and served in our family. These are very simple and easy to make. It takes 30 to 50 minutes. We especially put importance on the fact that you could make them when you go back to your country.
We also want to teach special recipes related to keen sense of the seasons and traditional events in Japan. For example, We celebrate Hinamatsuri(Girls’ Day: celebrate the growth of girls) in March in Japan. We make special Sushi to celebrate that and talk about the history. In Experience Class, you will learn how to do Shuji, Origami and dressing in kimono. Also, you make paper fan and letter paper by Japanese traditional paper. These are very delicate but beautiful! You will be more exposed to Japanese tradition and culture through these classes.(You couldn’t choose class types.)
SEE old rows of houses! COOK and EAT local dishes! EXPERIENCE traditional events!We hope that you enjoy Japan and want to come back again soon!
