“GRANDMA’S KITCHEN”

[ The Class ] My class offers a unique chance of creating your own Japanese dining experience from preparing to cooking to serving the meal in a traditional Japanese setting using designed tableware. You can serve the sushi rolls on ceramic plates of various designs, shapes and materials for different seasons. You may also enjoy pouring miso soup into lacquered bowls with beautiful designs. In my cooking class, you can savor the Japanese homely atmosphere.    
  MENU
  • makizushi (sushi roll)
  • Japanese omelette
  • miso soup
  • sesame pudding
This cooking class would be a fun and memorable experience for you as you’ll get a chance to cook in an actual Japanese home kitchen and feel like you’re being taught by your own grandmother!
  Optional Side Trip: After the class, we can check out the nearby local supermarket halfway back to the train station. You can learn more about Japanese culinary landscape and be amazed by the wide range of foods, seasonal goods, and prepared dishes. This is an amazing way to get a feel of the daily life here in Japan.

Teachers profile
I was born in Osaka — known as the food capital of Japan — and for three generations, my family ran a food business. For ten years, I’ve been a cooking instructor, conducting classes in my home kitchen in Fujimino City for Japanese locals. What inspired me to give cooking classes to foreigners is the kindness and hospitality I experienced when I was living in Canada. In return, I’d like to have this chance to introduce and promote traditional Japanese food, etiquette, and culture to foreign students, residents, and tourists in Japan.
