  • 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 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.

Cooking Class Information

In Japan, we have traditional vegetarian cuisine called Shojin ryori, which is developed at Buddhist temples. Healthy and well-balanced cuisine featuring seasonal vegetables, soybeans including tofu, and nuts. We make a variety of vegetarian dishes inspired by classic Shojin ryori with a modern twist. These are no meat, fish, egg, milk, honey but I'm sure even nonvegetarian may 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 realized 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 more than a thousand years. I also love cooking, so that 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 or Ginkakuji, Nanzenji near my flat. I can advise you about nice spots for sightseeing or restaurants in Kyoto.
