About Host



★★★★★ (2)

Hello! My name is Izumi. I love cooking so much that I made my own wedding cake for my wedding ceremony. I have qualifications for confectionery course and sugar cake course of the cooking school of Tokyo.
Once I lived in Northern Virginia, USA for two years when my kids were small. The elementary school where my son went had so many international students from over 70 countries, and I cooked Japanese foods in the school festival. The memories I had there through exchanging cultures and cooking were amazing! Now I have a qualification for the Japan association of cooking for foreigners, and teach them Japanese cuisine. I have also vegetarian and vegan menu.
Now I live in suburban Tokyo area, where the Ghibli Anime "My Neighbor Totoro" was set. After the cooking experience, I can provide you with a walk to Hachikokuyama forest park, so-called Totoro related forest. (approximately 30 min) You can enjoy the nature in Tokyo.

La comida que preparé con Izumi san estuvo fantástica! Más que todo aprendí a cocinar al estilo Japonés. No tuve ningún problema con el lenguaje porque las instrucciones eran en inglés y ella fue muy amable. Definitivamente vale la pena pagar 5000yenes. Les recomiendo a todos tomar esta clase, es excepcional!
