Hello, I'm Naomi, an artist and a cooking enthusiast. I lived in NY for four years and recently returned to Tokyo, my hometown. During my time in NY, I hosted numerous home parties, delighting my friends with a mix of Japanese and non-Japanese dishes crafted from locally sourced ingredients. Encouraged by friends, I decided to start sharing my culinary skills through cooking classes.

Now, I'm excited to show you the secrets of crafting delicious Japanese meals. Even though Tokyo is my hometown, I am always eager to answer any questions or provide support to ensure you have a fantastic experience here.

Our cooking class is conveniently located in Arakawa-ku, just a short 3-minute walk from Machiya station and 25 minutes from Tokyo station. Nestled in an old town area, surrounded by charming old houses and narrow streets, it's a delightful place to explore and immerse yourself in Japanese daily life. Children can participate from the age of 4. Due to safety considerations, the fee will be the same as that for adults.

Our cozy class takes place in my home, where you'll also meet my friendly cat, Goro. He's always happy to be part of the experience and is super friendly to everyone.
I'm going to pick you up at the gate of the closest station!
Feel free to join us for a unique cooking adventure in a warm and inviting setting!
