  • 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.

  • Tea Ceremony

    Tea Ceremony

    The Japanese tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition closely tied to Zen Buddhist principles, and a popular way to experience Japanese culture. There are several variations on this ritual. At its base, powdered green tea (matcha) is prepared and served in accordance with strict rules. Oftentimes, wagashi (Japanese sweets) is served alongside the bitter green tea.

I had lived overseas over 20 years, and through my career, I notice that many foreigners are interested in Japanese homemade food and love to meet Japanese people.
So, I decided to open a cooking school to invite those tourists to experience Japanese culture at home.

My cooking class is held in a small local town, where you can enjoy visiting lots of small shops, cafes, supermarkets, shrine, and even a historical public bath! before and after the lesson!

Satoko was a great host and incredibly kind to us and our kid as well. She has to tell some interesting stories from around the globe. The food preparation instructions were clear and Satoko helped us and our kid whenever we needed. We felt very welcome in the clean house located in the lovely outskirts of Tokyo. If you have kid don’t miss the nearby awesome playground including a real steam locomotive, a firetruck and a driving learning are for children. Awesome start into the day! Thank you so much and lovely greetings :)
