What I liked: Meeting Sato-san was my highlight! He welcomed us into his home kitchen and shared everything that he knows about preparing Japanese staples like miso soup and rice. He shared his mother’s homemade miso with us and showed us how to properly make miso soup from start to finish. Sato-san was so excited to share his rice burger recipe with us because he wants travelers to experience this local favorite! His recipe was also extremely delicious!
What to know: Take the class with the tour! That would be my biggest tip. Exploring Tokyo’s hidden gems with Sato-san will give you an unforgettable experience.
