  • 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.

  • 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.

About Host



★★★★★ (1)

My name is Miwako. I was born in Japan, spent my childhood in London and my adolescence in France. Unfortunately, I lost my english and french a lot... but still love to chat with people. I have a hilarious husband and a 2 years old super active baby. ( The baby will be at the nursery while I greet the guests. )
Love nature, dishes, eating, cooking, knitting, handcrafting, traditional things like antiques, wearing ( and dressing people ) kimono, japanese tea ceremonies ( surviving green tea )...
I have some vegan / vegiterian friends and I myself am flexitarian ( semi-vegetarian ) too.
I live in Chofu ( about 20mins from Shinjuku by train ), where you could find more natures than the central Tokyo.

Ellen, United States of America


I had the most delightful afternoon with Miwako. She is much, much more than just a host or cooking teacher. She is warm, generous, smart and an excellent cook! I felt as if I was visiting and cooking with a friend. Please don't be put off by the distance from Miwako's to central Tokyo. It is definitely worth the trip to meet her and to taste her wonderful cooking.
