Vegan Plate based on Shojin-ryori (traditional Buddhist cooking)

The minimum booking is 2

Cooking Class Information

In Japan, we have traditional vegetarian cuisine called Shojin ryori, which is developed in Buddhist temples. Healthy and well-balanced cuisine featuring seasonal vegetables, soybeans including tofu, nuts, or other traditional foods. We make a variety of vegetarian dishes inspired by classic Shojin ryori with a modern twist. No meat, fish, egg, milk, honey but you can enjoy flavorful taste. I'm sure even non-vegetarian will satisfy with this menu!

All cooking classes by Yukari



I'm Yukari living in Kyoto, working as a food writer for over 10 years. Through my work, I truly realized good aspects of Japanese cuisine such as abundant fresh seasonal ingredients, beautiful presentation, well-balanced menus, and a wide variety of regional food behind its culture for more than a thousand years. Not only writing a cover story about food but also love cooking so I started offering a cooking class for foreigners an understanding of Japanese food lot more than Sushi and Ramen. I hope participants to enjoy Japanese home-style cooking you will never have in restaurants.

After lunch, you can go to sightseeing Shisendo, Manshuin, Ginkakuji, Nanzenji near my flat. I can advise you about nice spots for sightseeing or restaurants in Kyoto.

I loved every moment in Yukari’s Shojin Ryori cooking class. She is knowledgeable (a Food Writer for magazines) - her home is cosy, her style professional and warm. I learnt a lot and look forward to recreating the menu at home. I highly recommend her class and will book sgsin when I return to Kyoto. X

Family and I had an amazing time at Yukari's Shojin-Ryori class. She also made a special presentation for us about "fermentation" which we greatly appreciate. She's also very knowledgable in cooking and Japanese cuisine. Highly recommended to take her class!

The cooking class was wonderful! I learned more about Japanese cuisine and Shojin Ryouri, and even got to work with ingredients I hadn't known of before. The recipe steps were simple and the end result nutritious and delicious. To anyone with an interest in veganism/vegetarianism or even just cooking in general I would highly recommend Yukari's class!

We loved cooking with Yukari. The menu was delicious and showed us all of the variety of things we could do with a few simple ingredients. She also provided a nice overview of the temple cuisine and was knowledgeable to answer all of our questions in great English! Would highly recommend her for any cooking experience she offers!

We were so impressed by your wonderful kitchen setup and the exquisite foods you provided! This was one of my favorite parts of our journey to Japan. To me it was very special to get to watch and learn Japanese cooking from a local. For years I have been intrigued with Japanese cooking and Yukari really delivered! I will undoubtedly by sharing the skills I gained with my friends and family back in the United States, as so many United Staters don’t have an intimate knowledge about Japanese cuisine!
