  • 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.

Naoko is a patience and resourceful teacher. Beside the routine Japanese family food, she is also an expert in making sauces -- homemade soy sauce, miso, tabasco, etc.

Naoko was very welcoming, entertaining, a good conversationist, cooked/served great food, and had a clean and beautiful home. The evening was beyond our expectations. We wanted to take her with us and make her our friend but we realized we had to share her so others can enjoy the amazing experience.

I had a wonderful time with Naoko! The meal was delicious and I'll definitely try to cook it at home. Also, I got to learn many things about Japanese culture. Incredible experience, I definitely recommend it!

An excellent class! I asked for authentic Japanese home cooking, and that is exactly what I got. The dishes were delicious and I feel I can make them at home. Naoka was a very pleasant hostess and a talented chef. She even makes her own miso paste and soy sauce! She’s located Steps up from the train station in a very warm and inviting home. A great experience! Thank you, Naoka!
