All cooking classes by Naoko

Hello & Bonjour. I've been organising the Japanese style Shojin & vegan cooking classes in English and French with several specialists. It is my pleasure to present many differents ideas and bases with which you can continue cooking when you will be back home. The class will take place at my apartement in Kamakura, known for the historical sites (Great buddha, the first zen temple, one of the biggest shrine in Japan etc). You could also go to the beach, 7 min walk from our place.
There is an article about our lunch/dinner classes on the web page to find the detail.

We had a very joyful and educational time at Naoko cooking class! She was very clear and answered our questions. The food we prepared was delicious and all vegetarian. We would love to take another class.

We had a wonderful experience cooking traditional vegan versions of Japanese dishes with Naoko and her mother. It was an absolute highlight of our month in Japan! Thank you!

What a privilege to learn from Naoko and her wonderful mother! With a tailor made and conscientiously prepared class and Naoko's fluent English and well travelled knowledge of food, I got so much out of the lesson. Creating a wide range of beautifully presented dishes and then also getting to enjoy eating them! I would recommend this to anyone. I would also recommend the day trip to Kamakura, by the seaside and full of beautiful temples and charm. 6 out of 5 stars!

I felt soo fortunate to have a home cooking class with Mari Fuji - what an experience! Great flavours and a very fun time. There were 9 of us and we were creating a special celebratory meal for the Doll celebration aka Day of the Girl. Highly recommended.

We learned so much in our cooking class, I don’t even know where to begin! It was very nice to learn about how you can manipulate the flavours of very simple ingredients to make several dishes incredibly unique. Naoko speaks amazing English, French and Japanese, and was incredibly warm and welcoming. Not only that, but arranging the dishes to be presentable in a nice way was very fun. We felt super welcomed and learned so much about Buddhist cuisine. I can thank you enough Naoko! Thank you for being so warm and accommodating, and for teaching us so much!
