My boyfriend and I had a really enjoyable class with Yumi. Yumi was sweet, kind and attentive - she kept a close eye on our ramen/gyoza to make sure they would turn out well, but at the same time let us do most of the cooking on our own. The noodles and gyoza were delicious!! Would highly recommend this class! :)

We had the best time ever! Yumi was incredibly accommodating and picked us up from Tsukiji station. From our first interaction it was all smiles, laughs and a good time. Yumi was incredibly organized and we managed to cook both the ramen and gyoza simultaneously. The work space was clean and the food was all organic with no msg in sight. Most importantly - the food was delicious! (Huge gyoza fans). We had an incredible time with Yumi and couldn’t recommend her classes more. Thank you Yumi, we will definitely be back.

Our cooking experience started with Yumi meeting us at the station and we were instantly excited by her bright and cheerful personality. She was so friendly and her lesson was easy to understand and follow step by step. Yumi is very patient and she puts her students at ease and you truly feel like an invited guest in her kitchen. Yumi had us smiling from beginning to end and every time I make a gyoza I will fondly think of her. My 16 year old son who is normally quiet couldn’t stop chatting to Yumi during the class and the experience is one of his highlights of Japan. Thank you so much Yumi for the cooking experience.

Yumi was a fantastic host. She was friendly and welcoming, and answered any questions we had, taking into consideration the alternatives we could use back in our home country. The ramen and gyoza we cooked were simply delicious. I like that the class was small (4 of us only).

Absolutely loved it! I've never taken a cooking class while traveling before, but I absolutely loved it. Yumi was wonderful teacher, answered all my questions, provided take home instructions for recreating the dishes and gave me so maybe cooking tips for the future. Can't wait to try them at home.

My experience with Yumi-san and Kookai Cooking Class was A+. Her instruction was thorough, the dishes were delicious, and our time spent cooking was a lot of fun. In addition, her cooking studio is cozy and beautiful. She sent each student home with a packet of instructions to recreate the dishes at home, which was a nice touch. When I attempted the dishes at home, I found that I had a few questions. I have emailed her on several occasions since our class, and she has always responded quickly to help me through my cooking process at home. I am currently an expat living in Tokyo, so Yumi-san also gave me a few grocery store contacts and food item brands to help me find the best products for my at-home dishes. I plan to bring me young family members to her bento box class this spring, and hope to encourage my adult friends and family visitors to attend her classes. It's a really fun and unique way to experience Japan!

Yumi was very personal, Refreshing and excited to teach each of us on how to prepared and cook this famous meal. Laurie & I have a new outlook on Ramen & Gyoza. We now link Ramen to Yumi.....

Guillermo, Spain

★★★★★

Our cooking experience with Yumi was super nice! It was two of us that did the class, so we could have her full attention :). The studio was very cozy and we prepared everything from scratch: noodles, broth and gyozas. Yumi guided us step by step but it was us who cooked everything, which was really nice! Yumi is an excellent host and a really nice person, we had a lot of fun with her. We asked for the vegetarian version of the course (which is actually vegan) and it turned out to be delicious and lighter than the regular ramen. I highly recommend this class, I would definitely do it again!

Florian, Germany

★★★★★

Thank you so much, Yumi-san, for an amazingly inspiring evening. It was the perfect mixture of preparing a wonderful meal, learning novel essentials and new tricks of Japanese cuisine and being introduced to the secrets behind your truly amazing selection of highest quality food prepared to the highest standards. I was truly impressed by your broad knowledge of the different flavor components, how they are put together to create that magic of a marvelous eating experience and especially how you, in an absolutely easy to understand way, explained that all to us and answered our curious questions. And, on top of that, you are such a wonderful person and host, always concerned about each person’s well-being. That provided a very special space not only for a pleasant learning experience (and my initial struggles with the gyoza folding) but also for some great conversations and insights into the Japanese culture.

I found this class online through airkitchen. At first I was a little hesitant about taking a cooking class in a foreign country in a strangers home. After I did a little research, I found a well known YouTuber had taken her class which made me feel a little more comfortable. Taking Yumi’s cooking class was the best way to start our vacation in Japan!! It was our first day in Japan, so we were a little confused about where to meet Yumi, but her directions were very clear and using google maps helped. After meeting Yumi at the station, we walked maybe less than 5 minutes to her studio. Her studio is very welcoming, cozy and clean. When we started cooking, her instructions were very clear and she made sure we always understood her. She never went to fast explaining her instructions and always paused to ask if she was clear or if we had any questions. The ramen turned out AMAZING! Both my boyfriend and I each made our own bowl of ramen and worked together to make the gyoza. Yumi is such a sweet lady and I’m so glad to have met her and had the opportunity to take her class. The food was great, her instructions were clear, but most importantly Yumi made us feel welcomed and was very easy to talk to. We shared stories, laughed, and she taught us how to speak a little Japanese. She felt like a friend we hadn’t seen in a while. I HIGHLY recommend her cooking class to anyone who’s visiting Japan for their first time or even if you have visited before or live there! Even after our trip, my boyfriend and I agree, that was the best ramen we had while in Japan, and that was the best night. You will not regret taking her class, promise. Thank you Yumi for having us!

Had a wonderful time! My family and I enjoyed the entire ramen and gyoza making experience. Yumi was very friendly and funny and made us feel comfortable right from the start. Yumi answered all our concerns regarding our son and daughter’s food allergies (peanuts/nuts/scallops) before the class – none of these allergens were present in the recipes. We had no problems understanding her English instructions and she was very knowledgeable. Yumi provided everyone a copy of the recipes to take home and answered any questions we had. The end product was very yummy. Would not have known, without hands on experience, the proper texture/feel of the final ramen dough. We learned quite a lot.

We loved our cooking class with Yumi! Yumi was a great host and we look forward to putting everything she taught us into practice at home. Yumi also answered all our questions/concerns regarding our daughters food allergy (peanuts and tree nuts) before the class - never was it an issue. We highly recommend this class!

Hi Yumi many thanks for your cooking class. As mentionned I have participated to many cooking class. I found that I have experienced on Tuesday with your class a kind of pre-pared cooking class which allowed me only to fix dishes previously down. I would have preferred to prepared the noodle pasta instead of tapping it with my feet during 30 mns. although it is Japanese tradition it is not kind of hygienic way of preparing meals, I would have liked to prepared a dashi or why not going to the market with you instead. I reckon that in two hours time it is really short but I assume class can be improved or tuned according to cooking experienced customer.

We were a class of three, all from different countries. Apart from learning how to cook ramen/ gyoza, we got to share our thoughts and experience as well. Yumi was a really kind and energetic instructor. She always smile. Her English is very good and she sure knows a lot about the recipe. I would totally recommend this course!

Amazing experience! I strongly recommend everyone who visit Japan to attend Yumi-chan class! Learn how to make Japanese food and you will be thrilled to experience the real deal of Japan. If only I found Yumi's class earlier, I would bring all my friends and family to attend her class. She is so friendly, speak good English and also very helpful in meeting our dietary needs. For those who need to have halal or vegetarian, Yumi can do it too! Spread the word. Attend her class and you know what I mean! Gambate ne!
