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. Enjoy fresh seasonal vegetables and Japanese traditional food products.

About Host



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.
