・Anime Character Bento (Japanese Lunch Box)
Anime that is one of Japanese culture. How about packing that character into a lunchbox and boasting to your friends? Let's make a fun, fun to watch, eat and tasty character bento together! Everyone can participate as I will teach skills that can be easily created!
I have experience as a lecturer in a cooking class for foreigners, and I've taught Japanese food and character lunch boxes to many foreign guests. In August 2017, I participated in the International Character Lunch box Contest and won the prize.
I've helped Make a Wish, the volunteer organization that makes the world's largest dreams come true, by carrying out character lunch box lessons for a Make a Wish child.
During lesson time, I will teach you some fun cooking skills, including children and beginners, can make with an explanation that's easy to understand.

I had a wonderful cooking session together with Yoshie-san. I took two classes with her, Pikachu and Hello Kitty. She shared with me different tricks and tips throughout, and we had a lot of fun making the decorations and characters. I would highly recommend Yoshie-san and her bento classes. I look forward to taking another session with her next time I am in Japan again.

I had a fantastic Bento class with Yoshie! She picked me up from the station and drove me to her family home so it was very convenient! She was clear with her instructions and very patient. Her attention to detail was great and she taught me about different Japanese ingredients. Would definitely recommend this class!
Response from Yoshie
I was really happy to spend time cooking in fun with my daughter. I'll get in touch with you when I go to England. Please reproduce the bento you made today in England!

Yoshie gave us a wonderful memorable experience. Our totoro boxes were so cute and delicious, and we had a lot of fun making them :-) . Yoshie was really lovely and a great teacher too. We will remember our totoro bento box making session for many years to come, a real highlight of our trip to Japan. Thank you Yoshie! Highly recommend!! :)
Response from Yoshie
Hi Tierney, Thank you for your nice comment! I was also happy to be able to make a lunch with fun. I wanted you to eat Totoro after cooking, but you didn't eat them easily, so I was in trouble (^-^; Thank you for worrying about the impact of the storm that occurred a week ago. Fortunately, I didn't rush in the area where I live. Please cherish your good friends forever and come to Japan again. Bring the men this time!

Yoshie is a very friendly woman. We enjoyed our time with her. My girlfriend was having issues making the Hello Kitty, and she took the time to help her out. We have picked up some new cooking tips. Thank you, Yoshie for your time.
Response from Yoshie
Hi Matt, Not only the cooking class for making bento, but also I had a lot of conversations with you, and it was a really happy and wonderful memory that I was able to communicate with you. And even after you return home, you really care about Japan. There is no impact of the storm, and my lesson is running. I'm happy to meet the kind-hearted Matt! And I'm sure your girlfriend is happy too. Be happy forever.

Yoshie was absolutely fantastic. She took us through the bento-making process step by step and was really encouraging. We were thrilled with our Pikachu boxes and would definitely recommend.
Michael, United States of America★★★★★
The cooking class will be definitely one of the highlights of my Japan trip. Yoshie picked me up from the train station and we went through a Japanese supermarket to pick up some ingredients. I learned how to make egg flower bouqets, tako & kani sausages, Totori rice & onigiri, and more. I also got to meet her daughter and see what life in Japanese suburbs is like. Also Yoshie was a great conversationalist and I enjoyed our chat. I hope to be back again sometime!

Thank you Yoshie for a great experience! My husband and two kids (ages 7 and 9) really enjoyed making the lunchboxes and learning so many things about Japanese cuisine. We would recommend this!

What a fantastic experience! It was so kind of Yoshie to adapt the Totoro bento for us as we are vegan and it was delicious! We are home in the UK now and have been continuing to practice! Lunch boxes will never be dull again! Thank you Yoshie for a memorable experience! x

Amazing experience!! We had a lot of fun cooking with Yoshie...she has been really nice and really competent in cooking and shaping the bento. I felt as cooking with a friend. I definitely would suggest her cooking class to everybody. I will surely book another time with her as soon as I get the chance. Thankyou Yoshie
It was so much fun making Kyara-ben. We had a great time! It was the best cooking class we've ever had. Thank you, Yoshie-san, for your patience and kindness. Much Aloha from Todd and Michie
Yoshie has been a wonderful host and teacher to me. I was very glad to have found her to teach me bento-making that rainy day. The lesson is not very tough and easy to understand. Also, i enjoyed my time conversing with Yoshie during the lesson and have many nice memories to bring home with me. A highly recommended experience to any travellers to Japan!

Yoshie was absolutely delightful! Her English was very good. The boxes we made were super cute and delicious. Strongly recommend as a beginner bento making course for anyone who is interested!

Best vegan bento class in Tokyo! ♥ Had a wonderful time with Yoshie! She is so warm, friendly and accommodating and really made an effort to make me the happiest bento box eater in Tokyo! ^‿^ She listened to all my requests and catered for me so well even though I am strictly vegan, gluten-free, asked for brown rice instead of white and also don’t eat sugar (all of which is really hard to find in Japan!). As you can tell by the pictures she is really knowledgeable in kawaii bentos and the result was SO cute! And tasty! ^‿^ Additionally Yoshie really is the best host and it was equally nice to just sit and chat with her because she is so kind! For vegans and vegetarians this is a must! Though I recommend EVERYONE to go! Definitely the highlight of my Tokyo trip! ♥
It was a fun class! Yoshie-san taught me a lot of things, not only about the cooking but also about japanese culture. I thought it will be difficult to make character bento, but Yoshie-san make an easy tutorial so I can make it with an easy way. I really recommend this class for everyone who interested in making character bento in an easy ways and fun atmosphere.

Thanks Yoshie for the wonderful experience! We had so much fun today making the Pikachu bento. Our daughter Tori left there feeling super happy she won’t stop talking about it. :-) Thank you so much for being so considerate for making the day extra special for her.

My friend and I had a kyaraben lesson with Yoshie-san. We spent a lovely and wonderful moment with her. We did a very cute Totoro lunch box, I was so pride of me to able to do it. It was easy to communicate with her, so I would recommend her.
We spent a wonderful time with Yoshie-san. She taught us how make a (cute) Totoro bento. Nothing difficult so even a child can participate. Also, it was easy to communicate with her before and during the cooking class, so never lost.

It was fun making the lunch box with friends and Yoshie san. Good to learn the basic yet very useful skills in the kitchen!
Awesome experience. We (myself, wife and 2 teenage daughters) loved it! Thanks Yoshie for the awesome experience!
