  • Onigiri

    Onigiri

    Onigiri is a Japanese comfort food made from steamed rice formed into the typical triangular, ball, or cylinder shapes and usually wrapped with nori(dried seaweed). Stuffed with a a variety of fillings and flavors, these rice balls make an ideal quick snack and are a fun alternative to sandwitches for lunch.

  • Rice

    Rice

    Rice is a staple food in Japan. In all most every family, there is a rice cooker. There is variety of Japanese rice brands such as Koshihikari and Hitomebore.

  • Miso Soup

    Miso Soup

    Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup. It's base is "dashi" (Japanese fish stock) and Miso paste. Common added ingredients are Tofu, Green onion and deep‐fried tofu but differs by personal preference. The type of miso is different from region. In western and Easter Japan white miso is mostly used.

  • Green Tea

    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

All cooking classes by Yuka



I am a certified cooking instructor in a Japanese cooking school in English. I especially focus on teaching and cooking for people who have food restrictions so that everyone can enjoy food at the same table. One time, I had many restrictions in my diet such as wheat, milk, eggs, soy beans, and also experienced attending to foreign employees with allergy and religious background when I used to work for a foreign company in Japan.  In the midst of all this, I could not forget the warm hospitality and cooking classes I had during my trips, and decided that I would like to return this gratitude to the foreigners visiting and living in Japan . Since then, while studying medicinal cooking, shojin ryori, macrobiotic, vegan, and vegetarian cooking, I have been cooking and supervising menus at organic cafes and food stores, selling gluten-free and vegan medicinal lunch and dinner boxes, and researching healthy cooking that can be enjoyed by everyone in various backgrounds.

I live in Oyamadai which is a peaceful and cozy area  just 20 minutes from Shibuya by train. We Todoroki canyon and Kuhonbutu temples are walking distance and also you can enjoy shopping in Jiyugaoka. 

I am happy to arrange food you would like to eat depending on your request and looking forward to sharing our food culture with you.
