The Japanese capital is a concoction of the modern and the traditional, as towering skyscrapers live among historic temples. With a diverse city comes diverse food, and Tokyo arguably offers the best food that Japan has to offer. With our cooking classes we offer many options for you to explore the variety of Japanese food such as Bento box making, sushi making, and ramen making. We offer you to explore the manifold of Japanese food as classes are taught by locals with recipes that have been passed down generations. In some of our cooking classes we even offer visits to a local market to collect your ingredients to cook with.
"Awesome Ramen Experience!"
We had an amazing time with Nahoko-san! She explained everything extreme well, had step by step instruction for us to take home, and made the entire ramen making experience very fun! Nahoko-san even spent some time talking with us after we finished our ramen, it was perfect. I would highly recommend cooking with Nahoko-san!!!

"A memory we will never forget!"
I have been staying abroad in Tokyo this past semester. When my parents came to visit, my mother booked us a cooking class with Sato for us to get a taste of home-cooked Japanese cuisine. Upon meeting Sato at the train station, I knew we were in good hands. He was welcoming, funny and a great tour guide as we wove through the streets of Shinjuku to his apartment. He carefully walked us through each step of the cooking process while carefully explaining the cultural significance of seasonal ingredients in Japanese Cuisine. He even provided the freshest ingredients from his family’s farm. He gave detailed instructions and was engaging throughout the entire process. We laughed, shared life stories, and bonded over a love of food. Not only was the entire process inspiring, but the results were well worth the labor. One of the best meals I have eaten here in Japan (and maybe even in my life). You can truly taste the love in the dishs, and the fresh ingredients that I learned so much about only made the meal taste that much better. I cannot wait to get back to a non-dorm kitchen to recreate these dishes for myself. Sato’s food and instructions were top notch and I also left feeling a greater sense of connection to Tokyo and Japan. Sato recommended upcoming festivals in the area, his favorite spots around Tokyo that I need to see before the semester ends, and support if I ever need any. I am truly so thankful my mother booked this experience, it was one of the highlights of their 3 week trip and one I have been raving to my friends about. Sato’s welcoming nature felt like home, even though 6,000 miles away. This was the home cooked meal I needed and a memory with my parents that I will cherish forever. I cannot recommend this experience enough. Sato is #1! We ❤️ you!

"A fantastic sake learning and tasting experience from Yuma!"
Yuma was an excellent host and took us through everything we could need to know about sake from its production to tasting notes.
We tried 5 types of sake of different kinds and had around 3-4 'bonus round' sakes so we tried a lot more than advertised which was much appreciated. The snacks provided were also excellent and complemented the sake well!
Thanks so much Yuma and I would recommend this class to anyone in Tokyo looking to learn about sake in a welcoming and warm environment!

Located in a cute shop just outside Asakusa station, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and better hosts. We had a large group of 9 including one in a wheelchair. They were quick to accommodate, and managed to teach all of us how to make traditional Tokyo style ramen and gyoza. The food was amazing, and the hosts were warm and personable. Even if you’re short on time in Tokyo, this is 3 hours well spent. 10/10 recommend.

"Amazing! Most fabulous guide!"
Yuriko, our guide took us on a tour of the old and new Tokyo fish markets. We were in constant amazement at her knowledge and access to ingredients and wares not seen before! We can’t thank her enough for our fun tour - we could have continued for days!

"5/5 stars highly recommend"
My partner and I attended Nahoko’s house for a cooking class to learn about and prepare ramen and gyoza.
We were greeted with a big welcoming smile from host Nahoko. We began by preparing, wrapping and eating the gyoza. The gyoza were so tasty it was hard to not eat them all at once to ensure we could save room for the ramen! We then made the ramen and Nahoko shared some of her secret recipe hints with us. The ramen broth and ingredients were so flavourful and we both were very full and satisfied after eating it.
We can not wait to host a dinner party and put our new skills to use!
The night was so great that we will be visiting Nahoko again next trip in Japan to learn more to further our knowledge.
I would highly recommend this class to all groups ranging from couples to families to friends.

We can highly recommend the Tea Ceremony at Ginza Chazen with a very dedicated Tea Master.
The information given up front was also very helpful.

From the beginning when we first met Emi at the train station to when she walked us through step by step how to make miso soup, classic Japanese omelette, three various types of sushi to even walking us through the supermarket to show us specific teas and soups, we felt so welcomed. She went above and beyond for us. Her English was excellent and had a large range of knowledge about Japanese culture and food. Could not recommend this class enough!
