Nikujaga is a material that you can easily obtain. When travelers return home to their home country, I will teach Japanese food to my family and friends in my home country as well. Let's have fun together!

  • Nikujaga


    Nikujaga literally means “meat and potatoes”, from two of the main ingredients niku (meat) and jagaimo (potatoes). It’s a comfort food for the Japanese and it is a very popular meal cooked at home. It is often considered “mother’s cooking” (“ofukuro no aji” おふくろの味 in Japanese) as each household cooks it just slightly different. The food itself is very simple and homely, and the warm bowl of your mother’s nikujaga brings one back to their roots. It is probably the most popular dish among all kinds of nimono (煮物 Japanese stewed dishes).

  • 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.

  • Tea Ceremony

    Tea Ceremony

    The Japanese tea ceremony is a centuries-old tradition closely tied to Zen Buddhist principles, and a popular way to experience Japanese culture. There are several variations on this ritual. At its base, powdered green tea (matcha) is prepared and served in accordance with strict rules. Oftentimes, wagashi (Japanese sweets) is served alongside the bitter green tea.

Cooking Class Information

Why not make Japanese food and enjoy a tea ceremony together?
The main dish of this time is a meat and a potato.
It is a classic menu of Japanese home cooking, using root vegetables such as potatoes and carrots and beef to finish it with a sweet spicy taste.

Because we are near 15 minutes on foot (one way) to supermarket, we prepare ingredients beforehand, but if you wish, you can buy them together.

In that case, the scheduled end time will be delayed from 30 minutes to 1 hour.
