Cooking Class Menu

You will cook 4 homemade Japanese local dishes.
1. Karaage (Japanese fried chicken)
2. Gyoza (Meat or Vegetable dumplings)
3. Temakizushi (Hand rolled sushi)
4. Oshiruko (Japanese sweets made from red beans)

Soft drinks such as mineral water, Japanese green tea, English tea, coffee, etc are complimentary.

If you have any specific requests, we will do our best to prepare for the ones.

  • Gyoza


    Gyoza is a dumpling using wrapping thing dough to hold the inner ingredients. Most commonly, minced pork, cabbage, Garlic and Leek. The origin of Gyoza is from China but it has evolved uniquely in Japan and now quite different from the Chinese one.

  • Karaage


    Japanese fried chicken, karaage is made by marinating bite-size pieces of chicken in sake, soy sauce, ginger and garlic before coating them generously with potato starch. When fried, the starch turns into an ultra crispy shell encasing a flavorful juicy bite of chicken. Absolutely great with beer.

  • 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.

Cooking Class Information

You and we will cook Japanese dishes together which we often cook and enjoy in our daily life. They will be different from what you can enjoy in restaurants or izakayas but we believe you will have a special local experience at our place.

Before the cooking class we can take you to a local vegetable store to buy ingredients.

Please feel free to give us a contact should there be any specific requests.

Reviews of Cooking Class

Alex, United States of America


I can’t recommend this cooking class enough. Our cooking class consisted of 4 different dishes that we chose. Nozomi and Kazuto were extremely friendly and personally picked us up and brought us to their home to cook. They did a good job highlighting traditional Japanese home-cooking for us and even gave us a little goody-bag at the end of the cooking session. I know that next time I’m in Tokyo I will be getting another lesson from them. Person A: “This was dope!!” Person B: “Great food, friendly people, and they gave us the recipes we used so we can make it again on our own! Thank you for sharing your home and food with us!”
