"Our cooking experience with Michiko was marvelous. Besides teaching us the expert techniques of tempura cooking, she also shared with us the history of the food we cooked. This exemplified her in-depth knowledge of Japanese cuisine. Her love for food art was also shown by the way she taught us how to set the table for the food, interwoven with beautiful tableware and cutlery sets. Aside to cooking, she was happy to share about the nice places of Tokyo to visit. In short, Michiko is an awesome host."
"We really enjoyed the whole traditional experience from the first meet up to the final goodbyes. Our host, Masako-san, was very lovely and generous. We love the udon and tempura making too! We didn't know udon was traditionally made that way. The traditional matcha drinking was an eye opening experience as well. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Will definitely go back again!"
