Description

Join a food stylist in their home or cooking studio for a private 3-hour authentic Japanese cooking experience and lunch. Learn not only the art of creative Japanese home cooking, but also Japanese-style food presentation. Leave with new recipes, a new friend, a glimpse into a local's life, and a new appreciation for Japanese food and culture.

Meet your host at the Shakujii-kōen train station at 11:30am and then travel by car through a lovely, residential neighborhood for your private Japanese cooking class.

Learn to prepare 2-3 dishes (choose between a hands-on class or demo), each of which is a beautiful, creative interpretation of traditional Japanese cuisine. You may enjoy the mouthwatering teriyaki chicken with its alluring marinade of mirin and soy sauce, or your host's take on chirashi sushi (a traditional rice bowl dish made with fresh, seasonal ingredients). The cooking experience will last about an hour before you sit down with your host for lunch at the dining table.

Your experience will conclude with an informal Japanese tea ceremony, after which you can ask for recommendations or directions for your return trip back to your hotel or elsewhere in Tokyo (return transportation is not included).

Please note: On select days, this experience will take place at a cooking studio located near the Kichijoji station, not the host's home. Also note that like many Japanese people, your host speaks very limited English. She will arrange to have a friend or family member join your experience to help with translation.
