Welcome to the treasure trove of delicious food, Japan!
My name is Oran Miho. I live in Ikebukuro, a major urban area in Tokyo, with my husband and our two daughters, making us a family of four. For many years, I have been hosting bread-making and cooking classes at a shared kitchen near my home.
For 16 years, I have been preparing daily bento boxes for my two daughters. This experience was not only an expression of love but also an opportunity to explore Japan's rich culinary culture. Now, I want to leverage this experience to share with visitors from abroad through my bento cooking classes.
To make the most of your trip to Japan, come experience my cooking class and get tips you can use at home!
During the cooking experience, I can also guide you to Tokyo's hidden restaurants, off-the-beaten-path tourist spots, interesting supermarkets, and a secret Japanese garden just a five-minute walk away, so you can count on me for travel support.
I look forward to meeting all of you.
