Welcome to imi's BENTO project!!!
Why is Japanese food so delicious, beautiful, and well-balanced at the same time? There is a secret method to make Japanese food so perfect. Even many Japanese do not know this method.
It doesn't have to be Japanese food to fill your BENTO box. Once you learn the secret method, you can make your own BENTO with the foods you cook everyday. You can make these foods more delicious, beautiful and well-balanced than ever.
My goal is to share the secret method with you so that you can continue the BENTO lifestyle after getting back home and to help spread BENTO worldwide. That's why this cooking class is called

Your class was the highlight of my time in Tokyo and possibly my whole trip. Would love to take another of your classes next time i'm in Tokyo

Kyle Thank you for choosing my class. So excited to hear that my bento class was the highlight of your whole trip because I know you had visited many places including Mt.Fuji, Kyoto and Hiroshima. I could tell in your eyes you were so excited about learning the secret methods and enjoyed making bento. I’m so happy you are practicing and asking me questions even after you went back home. Please come back again!
I had a wonderful time at imi’s class! She took the time to carefully explain the method to making a perfect bento before we started cooking, and the cooking itself was very easy to follow so I’m confident I’ll be able to apply what I learned after I return home. I think anyone from a beginner to someone more experienced with Japanese cooking would be able to learn something from this experience. The bento was very tasty, and Imi was also super friendly and easy to talk to. Highly recommended!

Emma Thank you for the review! I enjoyed sharing bento secrets and talking about your interest in musicals. So excited when you sent me a photo of your bento after returning home. Your bento had everything I shared in the class. You are a wonderful student! Keep your daily bento life going!
